LOS ANGELES, CA — “Sad news — I work at the Mann Plaza and as of now, October 14 will be the last day. It is set to be demolished and a shopping center will be built in its place (just what Westwood needs)!

The staff is bummed about this little gem closing. If you haven’t seen a film here yet, please do, or make one last trip to the Plaza to see one last film here. The small but cosy balcony is a must!"

A shame; what’s happening with the plans which were announced a couple of years ago to build a new multiplex in Westwood? Any news on that front? Were the plans quashed by the success of the Grove and Arclight and AMC’s new construction at Century City?

Saved for now? According to the Mann website, Napoleon Dynamite is booked begining Friday the 15th.

It survived one more week. The official closing has been pushed back a week to Thursday, 10/21. Napoleon Dynamite will be the last film for The Plaza. I’ll will keep everyone updated if anything should change!

I was lucky enough to catch the 4:30 show of Napoleon Dynamite at The Plaza during its last day, Thursday 10/21/04. I just moved to Los Angeles, so it was my first and only visit. I got to sit by myself in a very awesome balcony and watch the Norelco humming away in the booth project one last time. The setup and presentation were great; unfortunately it is situated next to a quite large vacant lot. Construction is supposed to begin soon on a retail/ condo complex on the site. I walked by it on Monday, and they were taking the poppers out of the stand.
