Cinema 5 in DL keeps long-time manager

Odyssey Entertainment, Inc. announced today the appointment of Mara Avila to the position of general manager of its new Washington Square Cinema 5 located in the Washington Square Mall in Detroit Lakes.

The cinema recently reopened in the mall after a brief closure by the previous operator.

Odyssey Entertainment President Steve Tripp said "Mara has been a fixture at the theatre for nearly 25 years and we could not be happier to have her on our team. It has been something of a homecoming for me as Mara was the first employee at the theatre when it was built and was actually hired by myself when I worked for the first owner Tentelino Enterprises."

Staff is now being trained on new computerized ticketing and concession equipment just in time for Motion Pictures biggest season in the next two weeks.

"It was an easy decision to join the Odyssey Team" said Mara Avila.

"I have known Steve for a long time and am excited to be a part of the things to come for this theatre." she went on to say.

Odyssey Entertainment, Inc. operates theatres under both the Odyssey and CineMagic banners in Minnesota, Iowa, South Dakota and Ohio.
