News About This Theater
- Apr 19, 2011 — Calling theatre angels! Historic theatre closing!
I spent far too many nights in this theatre. The outside isn’t much to look at but the lobby and auditorium were wonderful. It was built originally for Smith & Beidler in 1927, opening in early-1928 with Wallace Beery in “Wife Savers”. It is a ‘sister’ theatre to the Eastwood Theatre (which became a church but reopened as a 2nd run movie theatre and special events venue in late-summer of 2014). The outside of the Westwood Theatre was remodeled sometime in the 1960’s.
Screening adult movies for 30 years, it closed in May 2011, but reopened as the Westwood Theatre of the Arts in late-2012. It was closed in January 2017.
