Hate to break it to all of you yupsters, but the Grandview Theatre is NOT independently owned. It is operated by Mann Theatres, who also run Champlin and a few other of those "twenty screen multiplexes" you find out in the burbs. Steve Mann will NEVER install new chairs or nicer facilities, because he simply does not need to. He makes all of his cash off the suburban theaters, and keeps the Highland and Grandview open because they cost ZIPPO to run (every employee makes minimum wage) and he can rake in a few extra dollars off shmucks like you who think they are supporting a locally owned theater. I worked at the Grandview for 4 years and was never treated with anything but the uttermost disrespect by management (we were robbed 5 times, two at gun point, while I worked there and Steve still won't put in a security camera.) Support the grandview, but do it only to save some gas money driving out to the burbs.
