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.
