Galaxy Theatres opens Friday in the former Mann 4 complex in the Marketplace, and to entice customers, it’s offering free popcorn all weekend.
“That should get a few people out there,” said company president Rafe Cohen.
The theater in Glendale is the company’s first move into the Los Angeles area.
The company, founded by Cohen in 1996, has 13 theaters in four western states — California, Nevada, Washington and Texas.
Other theaters in California are located in the San Joaquin Valley, where Cohen opened his first theater in Porterville.
Cohen said Galaxy Theatres are known for their friendly customer service and providing certain amenities, such as popcorn seasoning, for free.
