Mann Theatres was founded in 1935. In 1970, Marvin Mann expanded the operation when he purchased the Highland and Grandview theaters in St. Paul. Marvin's sons (and current owners of Mann Theatres) Stephen and Benjie, became involved in the early 70's.
After working with and becoming partners with their father after 24 years, Marvin passed away in 1994 shortly before the opening of their Eagan location, which was dedicated in his memory. Since that time, Mann Theatres has opened multiple locations including Hopkins, St. Louis Park, Lakes 12 in Brainerd, Plymouth, Grand Rapids, Hibbing and Champlin.
Mann Theatres currently operates 9 locations, with a combined total of 70 screens. In mid-2012 Mann Theatres completed it's digital rollout with all theatres now having digital cinema including digital 3D at several locations.
