National Theatre gone again

Westwood Village's Mann National closed in April, reopened a little later as an indy screen and apparently locked the doors again on Oct. 7. Not that anybody noticed. Cinema has the history. And because the web is great, somebody there posted a list of every movie that ever played at the National. The run began in 1970 with nine weeks of The Boys in the Band and included a 26-week run of The Exorcist, which gave way to Chinatown.
