The Wilshire was acquired by the the former “city manager” of Commonwealth/UA and his wife in the early 1990’s. He operated it as a dollar house. For the life of me I don’t remember his name. It ran for a few years with some funky specials.

Wonderful info, Michael! It was indeed always a twin…I forgot to check that when I listed it.

Could someone please get the number of screens changed to Twin?

This theater opened as a twin, so the theater name at the top of the page ought to be revised to reflect this.

The Wilshire Twin opened on October 20, 1972. The debut attractions were “Where Does It Hurt?” and “Cancel My Reservation.”

Also, before being operated by Commonwealth Amusement (as mentioned in the intro at the top of this page), this was run by The Cooper Foundation (1972-74) and Cooper-Highland (1975-78). Commonwealth acquired the Cooper properties in ‘78.
