rivest266 commented about Foundry 7 Theatres on Jul 2, 2015 at 2:04 pm

KB went out of business on March 7th, 1994 (ended up with Cineplex Odeon)

“When the owners of KB Cinemas shut down the projectors and abruptly closed their Washington area theater chain almost two months ago, they left about 90 employees in the dark.

Some employees say they showed up for work the afternoon of Jan. 18 and were told the theaters were closing. Three days later, they said a KB corporate manager told them they no longer had jobs and wouldn’t get paid for their last three weeks of work. They say they also have not received W-2 forms, which are necessary for filing income tax returns.

Since then the employees say they have tried to locate the owners or the chain’s top executives, but that KB’s corporate office in Chevy Chase has been cleaned out and phones calls are not being answered."
