Landmark Theatres, a Wagner/Cuban Company, today announced that it will no longer operate the Canal Place Cinema in New Orleans, Louisiana. Monday, September 7, 2009 will be their final day of operation at that location.
It saddens us to leave the great City of New Orleans. Unfortunately, we were unable to come to terms with our landlord, said Ted Mundorff, Chief Executive Officer of Landmark Theatres.
Canal Place Cinema was built and has been operated by Landmark Theatres since 1988. It is located on the third floor of the upscale Canal Place Shopping Center at Canal Street on the edge of New Orleans' world-famous French Quarter. The Canal Place Cinema is New Orleans' downtown home for independent film and foreign language cinema, and has been host to the New Orleans Film and Video Society's annual film festival since 1988.
