Theaters 1,2 & 7 have 300 seats. 8 has 200. 12 has 250. 3 & 4 have about 100 each (more or less). 5 & 6 are small. 40-60 each. The “living rooms” 9, 10 & 11 have about 30-40 seats.
Yup, confirmed, Regency. The employees have to interview with them this week.
“I also heard Rave was the one taking over but that isn’t confirmed at all.”
I didn’t say I ‘keep hearing.’ I’ve already said more than I should. Talionis out.
There is also a vacant store front on the other side of the village.
Prime real estate that’s been vacant for years. Shows you how well Mann has been managed.
@ Segask, a digital projector in the village and another in the bruin.
Apparently, the company that shall not be named (because i can’t confirm it) backed out of the deal to take over April 1 because whoever takes over is also responsible for the Taco Bell attached to the Bruin and the Starbucks next to the village.
Village and Bruin have been booking movies until the end of the year.
Funny you should say 3-D. A silver screen is being installed at the Bruin. (which is needed to play 3-D) Oddly, Mann has only done that for premieres like Beowulf and then switched right back to white screens.
This makes me think Rave is the front runner. The good news is that this is a commited company that will invest in it’s theatres. Stay tuned.
Good news. It looks like the month to month will be going on longer than originally anticipated. They just re-installed digital projectors.
I saw the 20th anniversary screening of Lost Boys here in 2007 to a sold out crowd. Feldman showed up. No Haim. (RIP)
It’s all about booking. Especially in a college town. The Nuart has lines around the corner for it’s midnight shows.
@ Chris Utley, they still run screenvision in digital but it plays on a little mini-projector. Their NEC’s are long gone.
Slight change of plans. Mann told the employees that they are going month to month after March. So I assume the deal isn’t finalized.
I also heard Rave was the one taking over but that isn’t confirmed at all. They typically run all digital and don’t have projectionists. That’s not going to sit well with the union. If a non-union theater wants to book red carpet premieres, there is going to be some drama.
@ segask, the sound system would stay. my friend over there told me they were taking inventory of all the equip. especially the soundrack. plus when the national closed, all the equip stayed behind.
Shutter Island is playing in digital at The Landmark down the street. (and they rarely play digital anything)
I know for a fact the digital projector was removed from the bruin.
I have a semi-confirmed rumor that Mann is out at the end of March and an independant company is taking over soon after.
The digital projector was removed this past week. Time is winding down …
