The Westloop Cine Twins was opened by Commonwealth Theatres on June 20, 1973 with “Tom Sawyer” playing in both auditoriums, each with 350 seats. On December 6, 1985 it was expanded to six screens. Westloop 6 Theaters was operated by Carmike Cinemas. It closed on August 17, 2000 right after Carmike Cinemas filed petitions in U.S. Bankruptcy Court to operate under Chapter 11. The theater will not re-open. Instead, the American Academy of Hair Design is opening a new Cosmetology College in the former theater building. The following is from the American Academy’s website:
“Keeping the theatre theme! The college owners want to keep a piece of the theatre history in the new educational complex. The college is maintaining a ‘theatre’ theme that will include a hall of photos and artwork relating to actors throughout Hollywood history. We think the Hollywood artwork will give the school a unique decor that our students and clients will find interesting, said Laurie Yocum, college director”.
