Located in Westwood, formerly the AVCO Center Cinemas, this 4-screen theatre did bang-up business, especially on the weekends - with lines snaking down the block. It was opened by General Cinema on May 24, 1972 with 2,200 seats in three auditoriums. It was closed on December 6, 2011. The AMC AVCO Center was gutted.
In July 2012, iPic Entertainment announced plans to open a new 480 seat theatre on this site designed by Hodges Architecture. Slated to open in early-2013 (this deadline was missed), the theatre will feature six auditoriums seating between 60 and 80 people. Reclining chairs, pillows, and blankets will be provided and at the push of a button, moviegoers can summon waiters for meals and cocktails.
The new theatre was opened on May 2, 2014 as the iPic Westwood, screening “The Amazing Spiderman”.
