Mann digs in, taps construction chief

Mann Theatres has named Sig Raulinaitis director of construction, overseeing the Encino-based circuit’s aggressive theater-building program.

The 16-year construction management veteran will report to Dan Griesmer, VP of theater planning and development. He replaces Bruce Coleman, who recently ankled to Northern California-based Brendon Theatres.

Raulinaitis’ cinema-building experience includes a construction management position with United Artists Theatre Circuit, supervising projects throughout California.

Before that, he served for four years with Intertex of California, where as a general contractor he oversaw the construction of several cinemas for Edwards Theatres. Most recently, Raulinaitis served as project manager for Extended Stay America Hotels.

The appointment comes in the midst of an expansion program that will add 85 screens to the circuit over the next 18 months, bringing the count to 480.

Raulinaitis’ first project will be the completion of Mann’s largest complex to date: the Arapahoe Crossings 16 in Denver. The theater, which takes its design inspiration from Mann’s flagship Chinese Theatre, is set to open in December.

Mann’s projects in California include multiplexes in Glendale, Agoura Hills, Van Nuys and the East Bay.

Future sites include a nineplex in Westwood Village and a 14-plex adjacent to the Chinese, as well as two locations in San Diego County.
