This theatre originally opened in the Westland Mall in Louisville. It had four ‘box’ style auditioriums with red being the major color theme. It always used the half sheet posters for their cases. Although a first run house, it could not get the big flicks like “The Spy Who Loved Me”, “King Kong” and “Star Wars” because National Amusements had the hold on the big films for all of Louisville at that time.

The Westland would get films National Amusements (Showcase Cinemas) didn’t bid for like “Let’s Do It Again”, “Race With the Devil” and they even played “Logan’s Run” first-run. The theatre was always clean, but projection problems included mis-spliced reels, mis-numbered reels, bad film prints with multiple splices. I even remember when they played “King Kong”, after National Amusements let go of it, the whole gate-crashing sequence was missing.

Westland Mall was a misbegotten mallb built Begun around 1970 and finished a few years later, sitting half completed for at least a year. When it finally opened, it looked like Mr. Haney from Green Acres designed the floor plan. One end of the mall crazily narrowed to only about ten feet wide where it was haphazardly attached to a Consolidated Sales department store. Today, it is called Park Place and has been de-malled. It’s possible that in the back quadrant of the original space remnants of these theatres still exist.

This was the same company that operated the Raceland Mall 4 theaters in an equally horrible mall on Bardstown Road Fegenbush. It’s now Bill Collins Ford. I thought it was AMC Theaters when they opened.
