Here's the Mann Westwood Theatre. For a while, the Westwood and the Avco were the main "multiplexes" in Westwood Village (not including the UA Cinema Center a few blocks away).

 

UPDATE 01/03 : The Mann Westwood is gone and a Whole Foods is about to open in its place. The original structure is still there, it's just been renovated. Many thanks to Chad Jones for update. 01-03

Speaking of the Avco, here's the AVCO Theatre off Wilshire, near to the former location of Ships Westwood.

The Mann Plaza is not quite the spacious movie house that the Village, Bruin, or National are. But, especially pre-90's, this was considered one of the plush Westwood Village theatres.

Here's the UA Theatres in Westwood Village. A rather plain looking front facade greets the excited movie goer.

 

UPDATE 1/03 : The UA Westwood is also closed and Sav-on wants to put a store there. However, there is opposition to the zoning change required. Many thanks to Chad Jones for update.

The Crest Theatre in Westwood is a fantastic looking deco-like neon theatre, which was renovated to the Crest sometime in the late 80's or early 90's.

A trip to the newly redone Westwood Village usually includes a walk through the shopping area, a stop at a coffee shop, a quick jaunt over for a look at CDs at one of the numerous record stores, and a visit to one of Westwood's historic theatres. From the Fox Village to the Crest, Westwood is still home to some of the best and most spacious theatres in the area. And, as an added bonus, visitors can find a good eatery nearby just about all of Westwood's theatres.
