Sunday Marks The End for Westwood's AMC Avco Center 4
Failed negotiations for the lease for the AMC Avco Center 4 in Westwood mean the movie theatre is going to shut down on Sunday. AMC was unable to come to agreeable lease renewal terms with the landlord, Avco Corp., reports the LA Times' Company Town blog.
According to property manager Hope Hunter, however, movies aren't moving out of the property: "A really high-end movie theater will be taking its place. We're going to provide Westwood with a really great movie theater and a reason to come back."
The Avco Center 4 is the second movie theatre in Westwood to go dark lately; the Majestic Crest will be closing soon for "unspecified renovations."
Elsewhere around town, the Laemmle Sunset 5 is also closing in December, but will be refurbished and re-opened by new operator, Sundance.
AMC has operated the Avco since 2002.
