News About This Theater
- Oct 11, 2004 — Mann Plaza To Close Thursday, Says Source
- Mar 18, 2004 — Crest Theatre Now Hosts Midnight Classic Film Screenings
The Plaza Theater was a 650-seat single screen theater located in Westwood Village. It was a Laemmle theater and opened June 30, 1967. In 1981 Mann took over the lease. It once showed first run films but ended showing move-overs from Mann’s larger WestWood theaters (i.e. Village, Bruin, National).
This theater was once a beloved movie house of residents and nearby UCLA students who flocked to its midnight screenings of classic films like “Raiders of the Lost Ark” and more which were held on Friday and Saturday nights at the low price of $5.
The midnight shows stopped in 1999 and the theater closed in October 2004. It was demolished in 2005 to make way for a development project.
It’s a sad end for a nice neighborhood house.
