Action magazine, the newsletter of the Regal Entertainment Group of movie theaters, features Stockton’s Eddie Flaiz in its current issue. Flaiz is the manager of the City Center Cinema 16, the downtown Stockton multiplex.
Some Eddie trivia:
—He’s from Honduras
—He was adopted by a U.S. missionary nurse.
—He has cerebral palsy, and has suffered four strokes and two heart attacks. Yet he keeps a truly positive attitude.
The article comes closes to capturing Flaiz when it says, “He knows many (customers) by name and when he is not on duty guests frequently ask, “Where’s Eddie?”
That rings so true. Flaiz always greets me by name and chats. He says hello to my family. He recommends movies and gives my 13-year-old son little movie souvenirs. Janet Leigh Plaza can feel a bit urban, but when you step into that lobby you look for Flaiz and a warm greeting. He’s personalized that room with his friendly touch.
