For the seventh installment in our series of theater reviews, we visited the Mann Buenaventura at 1440 Eastman Ave. in Ventura. We went there on Halloween, so we are pretty sure the cobwebs and spiders were decorative.
Food: An interesting combination of items for the health-conscious (bags of dried apricots, cashews and yogurt-covered raisins) and the not-so-health-conscious (free M&Ms when purchasing a large coke and popcorn).
After the first bite, which was typically salty, the hot dog was quite edible. In fact, it could even be called tasty. The popcorn, however, was less of a surprise, once again drowning in bogus butter.
Restroom: Another surprise. It was clean. All the urinals flushed (really, we tried all of them). The colors were, as usual, ugly--but if you run into the restroom straight from the theater, before your eyes adjust, it's hard to see anything anyway. Best feature: Towel dispensers are low enough so that water doesn't drip down your sleeve while you are reaching for the paper.
