There are many things to say about the closing of Mann Theatres, but this is not the time nor place to say them. All I will say for now is that anyone who laments the closing of Mann Theatres clearly did not work for them in the past five years.
As sad as the passing of Bill Hertz was a couple years ago, it's a good thing he didn't see the pathetic end of the company he devoted so many wonderful years to.

My first job was at the Village in Westwood in 1980. Back then nobody could hold a candle to them. It is very sad to see them go. I'm not a fan of the AMC way of exhibition. Aside from the remaining large theatres Village, Bruin, El Cap, Cinerama Dome. I only really like Arclight Hollywood. If these did not exist I simply would stop going to the movies.
