News About This Theater
Located on N. 1st Street at Willis Street just off Highway 355, The Westwood Theatre opened on July 28, 1966 with “Stagecoach”. It was a single screen house seating 800. The Westwood Theatre was twinned July 1, 1977 when it featured “A Bridge Too Far” and “Star Wars”. It is a very pleasant and well maintained theatre. It has a large rectangular marquee over a blonde brick building. It is more or less the anchor of the small shopping plaza that it is located in.
The front walk is unique in that it is a terrazzo, and highly polished marble granite lines the lower portion of the front of the building. A large double window box office to the right side of the entrance.
The lobby is nice even though it is small. The auditoriums are narrow with eight seats on each side of the center aisle. One auditorium is done in a burnt orange and one is done in yellow. The walls are lined with sound draperies in these respective colors. The floors of the auditoriums are sloped for rather good site lines. The seats are comfortable but seem to be the original seats. (No cup holders).
Great sound and all in all a visit to the Westwood Twin is really an enjoyable night out to the movies. It was closed November 15, 2014.
