I doubt they’re paying rent. Landlord probably found them to keep the space from remaining vacant.

But it’s so much better than most of the Americana shoeboxes… I, for one, am grateful Galaxy saved it, at least for the short-term.

“All within a couple blocks of one another… all playing essentially the same stuff.”

All makes me wonder if it was a wise decision to even pick up this theatre.

Exchange 8 (formerly 10) – Vintage Marketplace 4 – Galaxy Americana 18 – Pacific

All within a couple blocks of one another… all playing essentially the same stuff.

Only the fourplex Scott…

So is Galaxy operating both plexes or just the four? And somebody else is operating the other?

Wow… It is the Galaxy Theatres as in THE Galaxy Theatres… It’s a nice plex, but I’m surprised they picked it up…

From a quick scan online… The pricing is better than the Americana now… $10.50 evening, $9 matinee, $7 senior/child, though I don’t know if they still give a parking discount/validation like Mann did.

Galaxy was big on upgrading to digital early on — wonder if they’ve paid to upgrade this place already.

The Mann Glendale Marketplace was closed, but thankfully has reopened as the “Galaxy Glendale Marketplace”. The grand opening celebration was this past weekend February 10-12, 2012.

If you remember the articles early this year (around April, IIRC), they said it would be turned into retail as part of a general revamping of the mall. Don’t know if the game-plan has changed since then.

What’s happening with the property? Have they gutted it yet, or is there a chance someone will pick it up as Vintage did with the Exchange?

Janss went to Regency.

Janis 9 must be closed already or sold to someone the only advertising there doing is for Westlake 8

Don’t worry Danny, you’ll see it again twice more… when you document the closing of the Westlake 8 and the Janss 9. :|

We all knew it was closing this year; you were two months off, bud. ;)

I went tonight, and it was indeed the last day of Mann operation (presumably all operation). It was the most scratched print I’ve ever seen — as if all the projectionists left a few weeks early — but it was still nice to see the place out. Hard to believe that it was probably the last time I’ll see the Mann Feature Presentation snipe…

It’s all first run again starting this weekend. A bit of a stumper given that on the phone recording, the guy introduced the second-run shows as a new $5 promotion and “this week, we feature…” as if there was going to be a next week.

Are they moving to a discount model?

Those return engagements Danny mentioned are replacing Apollo 18 and Shark Night. I imagine they could have just booked Gigli to replace those and done just as well.

Three theatres with a total of 21 screens. I imagine that one person is running the whole thing!

Danny Baldwin
Danny Baldwin on September 14, 2011 at 11:11 pm

This Friday, they are getting Kung Fu Panda 2, Super 8, Transformers 3, and Zookeeper. Standard late-summer return engagements, or a sign that they’ll close at the end of the week?

All that will be left is to make a list which theatres are still open and who is running them. The last trace of the mighty empire.

It is amazing that after looking at the Mann website, what was once a national chain, is now down to three locations and 21 screens. I worked for Mann out of the district office in Wichita, Kansas during the late 1079’s and early 80’s and now its all but gone! Amazing!!

Why are you posting this incorrect information about both Glendale theaters, ajtarantex? This and the 10 are both still open, with new movies.
