The Crest has closed again.
The Crest of Westwood is temporarily closed until further notice.
I was working at the Village during this period. In fact I was probably working the day this photo was taken.
There seems to be more renovating going on. I walked by today and there appears work is being done inside, and the only have 3 screens in operation.
I went today to the The Big Short. Took pictures which I just added.
The theatre will re-open at last!
Per Facebook opening is tomorrow January 29.
The wait is nearly over! After almost two years of development and construction, the all new Laemmle Monica Film Center opens this Friday, January 29th!
Online ticketing and showtimes will be available Thursday afternoon. The films opening Friday are THE 2016 OSCAR-NOMINATED SHORT DOCS, ANOMALISA, THE LADY IN THE VAN, MUSTANG, and THEEB!
Thank you for your patience! We think you’ll agree that it has been worth the wait! More details soon!
It appears that they will miss the Holiday Season and will open in early January. As of today that is.
I went to the ‘soft opening’ in early November. I was told I was the first person to watch a film in theatre #9. It seemed like a nice theatre, very pleasing to the eye and comfortable. I’m used to the Hollywood location but this is a nice version of Arclight “lite”. They use the space well and what they were able to do represents Santa Monica quite well. It is not a close enough venue for me to patronize all the time, but I will attend again if I am able to.
It appears that this will be getting the Arclight treatment.
ArcLight opens in Culver City, CA, late spring 2015!
We’re converting the Pacific Theatres in Culver City into an ArcLight! The theater will include ArcLight’s signature amenities, including reserved seating, black-box auditoriums, commercial-free movies, and gourmet cuisine, as well as 21+ screenings and our newly enhanced Membership program.
THEATRE IS STILL OPEN per the Landmark theatres website and Facebook. They have a indie Animated film HENRY & ME opening Friday the 5th, THE ROOM this Saturday at Midnite. A new cult film FATEFUL ENDINGS Friday Sept 12 @ Midnite and One Time Showing of FIDDLER ON THE ROOF Sunday afternoon the 14th. There are no listings for today they Indonesia Film Festival 3rd and 4th.
I think the Laemmle will end up closing if BOTH Arclights happen. The Broadway cinemas are pretty much gone. I’d say a year from now it will be closed. I would say the AMC7 will close soon after because everyone would prefer to go the NEW THEATRE.
It looks like it could work out better for Regency after all. They are not stuck with long engagements and will keep the bookings fresh as you said. Even though Westwood is working on an upswing I doubt there will be any other new theatres built there. I think the idea is to keep it a village and not the monster it was in the 70’s and 80’s. Along with the Regent and Crest there are enough screens in Westwood. Too bad the Festival could not be utilized again.
It is complete overkill to have 2 Arclights in Santa Monica.
iPIC Westwood has opened.
This is what they are now showing. They are booking day/date with Regency Village and Bruin.
Captain America: The Winter Soldier 2D (PG13)
Draft Day (PG13)
Muppets Most Wanted (PG)
iPIC (formerly AMC AVCO) has opened. They are booking day/date with Regency. Both are showing Trancendence, both are getting Spiderman 2 and Godzilla (day/date) in May.
I wonder how Ipic will be booked. I’m thinking the could book day and date with the Village on some engagements. It has been a while since I took Wilshire into Westwood. I’m assuming this will open later this year.
Interesting…I did not know they booked the Chinese also. Both Arclight HW and Chinese seem to be co-existing with same bookings.
I would assume this will be the last year the Broadway 4 Theatres will be in business. A dine in Theatre could be the only way AMC7 would stay open. Arclight SM would be the promenent theatre in SM and would really eat away at the competition.
I recieved this e-mail this morning.
As a valued ArcLight Member, you are among the first to hear the exciting news we just announced. ArcLight Santa Monica at the Santa Monica Place will be our newest LA-based ArcLight Cinemas and is slated to open in the spring of 2015.
I hate IMAX as much as I hate 3D. Throw in dinner service and you really piss me off. The Chinese theatre is DEAD to me.
The Cinerama Dome and the Chinese main theatre are both getting Gravity this Friday. Looks like the Chinese can book IMAX same time a film is at the Dome. I know Terminator Salvation was at the Chinese and Arclight at the same time, but not in the Dome.
Arclight Hollywood appears to be having a French Film Fest in August.
Pierrot le fou – Aug 4 in the CINERAMA DOME
Band of Outsiders Aug 6
Breathless Aug 8
Amelie Aug 18 -in the CINERAMA DOME
All in 35MM
In Addition, Enter the Dragon July 21st at the DOME
I grew up in Santa Monica and remember going to this theatre once in a while. The last time I was there was in 1977 for a Double Feature of Islands in the Stream and Fun with Dick and Jane, both of which I remember seeing First Run at the National Westwood.
I had the great pleasure of spending 10 days in Paris last month. My hotel; “Hotel des arts montmartre” was across the road 20 feet away from this beautiful theatre. Very small, but comfy cinema. It is the oldest theatre in Paris I was told. I became so frequent that the cashier tried to sell me a Frequent Patron Card. I wish I could be a frequent patron…maybe I will. The 2 new “night” pics I just added.
Very nice. Looks like it will return to MAJESTIC and not BIGFOOT.
Sad News. It was bad enough they were changing to stadium seating NOW IMAX is the final nail in the coffin. Film exhibition is really going down the toilet.
