Did the Mann Pierside Pavillion 6 in Huntington Beach close? It is not in the ever shrinking Mann ad in the LA times.

Rent probably too high.

As I mentioned in another thread:
This weekend's (5/7) Orange County Register classified section has a listing for "Movie theatre personnel. Positions open for pierside theatre in Huntington Beach." The contact information is The Movie Experience (aka Sandborn/SoCal).

Unless a theatre was recently built, that I'm not aware of, this must be the Mann Pierside Pavillion 6, which would mean Mann is no longer operating the theatre and The Movie Experience has taken the lease.

I wonder if they OWN the building and now that nobody else will run it for them they figure it's better for them to make SOME money off of it instead of leaving it empty???

To the best of my knowledge, the property is owned by a non theatre interest. It's a multi tenant building, with the theatre buried among upper level offices and street level retail. Being across from the ocean and adjascent to the busy main street area, I'd assume the lease is rather hefty. My guess is that the lease ran out and Mann wasn't willing to continue paying a premium rate. I also doubt this location pulls in enough business. In addition to being a mid 80's era multiplex (old Edwards), the theatre is somewhat hidden and there are always parking issues in the area.

Well Mann Theatres opened this theatre on May 24th. 1991 with the film "Backdraft". I was at the opening of the theatre for Warner Bros. Publicity for the opening photo shots. Edward took over the theatre and a few others in that region when Mann got out of the Orange County market. But later picked most of them back up from Edwards.
