Seating: 650

Status: Closed October 2004. The theatre was demolished for a new development encompassing the whole block.

The Plaza in the Movies:

We're in Westwood and get a look at the Plaza in Robert Aldrich's "Hustle (Paramount, 1975). The film stars Burt Reynolds, Catherine Deneuve and Ben Johnson in a tale of an L.A. cop investigating a suicide that may actually have been something else.

Thanks to Eitan Alexander for spotting this one -- and providing the screenshot. See the Theatres In Movies post for one more shot from this scene

More information: See the Mann Plaza page on Cinema Treasures. There's a small 1999 shot of the Plaza on the Westwood Theatres page of the Roadside Peek.
