Want to lease old theater with option

posted by oldmovieman on May 9, 2006 at 6:01 am

I am searching for an old movie house to lease with a future option to buy. Must be in operation, will consider the grand old type, but would like to be able to show “scope” 70mm (would be idea) for special festivals, etc. Not looking for first run.

Makes no difference what area of the country it is located will consider all. If it the right fit, i will go for it.

If you have one or know of someone who has one on the market, email me ASAP. Even you guys who want to sell, why not consider lease with option?

Mann National in Westwood Village, California. Mann is not renewing the lease as of July 2006. It is a grand theatre built in the late 60’s Early 70’s.

God bless you brother! man after my own heart.
Screw owning a restaurant. I too always wanted my own art house theatre. I know i could make it rock. Midnight shows of Rocky Horror a must! Good luck!

Hi Lainnman,

I am a preservationist, who is seeking parties of interest that may “save the day” for an endangered early 20th century theater by the prolific Thomas Lamb in Queens, NY. The theater may be available for lease or purchase. If you are interested, please contact me at your earliest convenience for more information via e-mail. Timing is crucial! Thanks!
