Mann Theatres to close its St. Louis Park cinema, with a health center replacing it

Its final day will be May 20.
Publish date:

This is a bummer for west metro residents – the Mann Theatres cinema in St. Louis Park is closing.

The building will be taken over next month by Park Nicollet Health Services, HealthPartners told BMTN, bringing the curtain down on 24 years of movies at Mann's 6-screen theater on Excelsior Boulevard.

It's a shame because Mann Theatres are among the best places to catch a reasonably-priced new release movie in the Twin Cities.

It's final showing will be on May 20, the Business Journal reports, meaning movie-goers will have to goer little further to Mann's other theaters in Hopkins and Plymouth to catch a cheap flick.

There's good news though, BMTN's Tip Jar found last year that these two locations offered some of the cheapest tickets in the metro area.

Bloomington-based Mann Theatres has been around for more than 80 years, and once the St. Louis Park location has closed it'll be left with 8 in Minnesota.

In the metro area it has cinemas in Highland, Grandview and Champlin, as well as the aforementioned sites in the Hopkins and Plymouth.

Outside of it, Mann has theaters in Grand Rapids, Hibbing and Brainerd.

The St. Louis Park has faced competition in recent years from, among others, the 14-screen ShowPlace ICON in St. Louis Park's West End (which also featured among our cheapest movie theaters).

Under the redevelopment plans on the City of St. Louis Park website, Park Nicollet would take up residence on the first floor of the building, including where a Chipotle currently has an eatery.

The new Park Nicollet Specialty Center is expected to open early next year, and would include plastic surgery and urology services, HealthPartners said.

Chipotle would move to the former Granite City location nearby, with a HealthPartners dental clinic also moving into that space.

The Bruegger's Bagels in the Mann building will shut down.
