Reasons to Love Minnesota No. 5: Mann Highland Theatre

A star is reborn in St. Paul

The two-screen Mann Highland Theatre in St. Paul reopened in November 2018 following a $1 million dollar renovation. The first-run, family-owned cinema has been a staple in Highland Park since 1939. While its iconic pastel Art Deco marquee remains unchanged (thank goodness!), inside it’s a whole different ballgame: schmancy new seats and curtains, a revamped concession stand, and a micro museum highlighting the movie house’s long history. General admission tickets cost $8.50 and matinees $6.50—except on Tuesdays, when all screenings are just $5. (Recent showings include the Ruth Bader Ginsburg biopic On the Basis of Sex and Melissa McCarthy’s Can You Ever Forgive Me?) Another reason to carve out some midweek movie magic: free popcorn with the purchase of any size drink every Tuesday.
