Closed since 2005, the Westview Mall cinemas will reopen tomorrow as the Diamond Cinemas Westview under the ownership of local comic-book distributor Steve Geppi. "I've always had an affinity for movies and movie theaters," says Geppi, 58, owner of Diamond Comic Distributors, the world's largest distributor of English-language comic books. "And I've always thought the best place to locate a comic-book store would be next door to, or practically in, a movie theater. Not that I'm ready to announce that I'm opening a comic-book store at Westview, but you never know."
