UA Westwood

10889  Wellworth Ave. Los Angeles, CA 90024
| map

Opening: This theatre opened as the United Artists Cinema Center in 1972. It's a building that previously had been an auto showroom on the northwest corner of Wellworth and Westwood Blvd. The Crest Theatre is just up the street.

It was later known as the UA Coronet and, finally the UA Westwood. It opened as a 4-plex but in its final years was only 3 as the two smallest auditoria were combined to make a larger one.

UA also operated another house as the UA Westwood prior to losing the lease to Cineplex Odeon. That theatre, north of Wilshire, ended up as the Mann Festival.

Seating: When it was a triplex the capacity was 500, 500 and 200.

Status: It closed in 2001 and got remodeled into a CVS pharmacy.
