Built on the site of the old General Motors plant site in Van Nuys, which was leveled for a large mall/shopping center complex in the 1990’s. Operated by Mann Theatres until June 2011, when Regency Theatres took over.

The surrounding area has seen better days. However the theater and the shopping area are kept up well. The opening of this theater precipitated the closing of the Americana Theater located up the street in Panorama City. The Americana Theater in turn had also helped bring about the eventual switch to Spanish language films for the Panorama Theatre, which was also further up the street in Panorama City.

Most of Regency’s chain is made up of previous Mann theatres. I bet they will take over Thousand Oaks and Westlake Village also.

It is sad going to the Mann site these days. They have the Chinese dragon emblem with thier logo, they have a friends us link for Facebook, and they are down to 4 complexes. Honestly, how much longer will they last?

I agree, Brad. It is indeed time to give up the ghost once and for all.

It does make me sad. I grew up seeing films at Mann theatres, my first job was at the Village. AMC did not exist anywhere nearby until the late 1980’s.
