Crest Theater Closes Indefinitely For Improvements

The company that owns the theater says there are no updates on renovations or when it will reopen.

The Crest Theater, a historic Westwood landmark that opened in 1940, closed last week for an undetermined amount of time.

The theater has been dark since the end of the Asian film festival Singafest. Bigfoot Entertainment, which owns the theater, told the Los Angeles Times in late September the theater would close for renovations. An announcement about the renovations also appears on the theater's website.

Currently, there are no updates on the renovations, said Ashley Jordan, chief executive officer for Bigfoot Entertainment.

"We're discussing it now," Jordan said.

The Los Angeles City Council made the theater a historic landmark in 2008.

So sad ... another piece of Westside history lost. Pray it's not forever.
