Former Mann 4 to house dinner theater
FORT COLLINS, CO — Scheduled to open in September, the Mann 4 is morphing into the Midtown Arts Center. In its new role, the former cinema will be home to the Carousel Dinner Theater and three other function and performance spaces.
Carousel Dinner Theatre owners have purchased the former four-plex cinema – which closed in 1999 and up until this year was used by the Lithia car dealership to store tires and equipment – and plan to reopen it this fall as the Midtown Arts Center.
“We’re so excited that this is finally happening,” said Kurt Terrio, adding that they kept the project secret, even from the dinner theater’s employees, until they were certain it was going to go through.
