United Artists Westwood 4


10889 Wellworth Ave.

Los Angeles, CA 90024

Opening: This house opened as the UA Cinema Center in 1972. It's a building that previously had been an auto showroom.

It later was known as the UA Coronet and, finally the UA Westwood.

It opened as a 4-plex but in its final years was only 3 as the two smallest auditoria were combined to make a larger one.

UA also operated another house as the UA Westwood prior to losing the lease to Cineplex Odeon. That theatre, north of Wilshire, ended up as the Mann Festival.

Seating: 500, 500 and 200

Status: Closed in 2001. Now remodeled into a CVS pharmacy.

More information:  There's a history of the UA Westwood on Cinema Treasures.

You can see an exterior photo by Scott Neff on Cinema Tour. About as exciting then as in its current incarnation.
