Crest Theatre
1262 Westwood Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90024
The Crest Theatre was designated as a cultural history landmark by the city of Los Angeles in 2008. The theatre wasMore originally built in 1941, designed by Arthur W. Hawes and owned by Frances Seymour Fonda, second wife of Henry Fonda and mother of Jane Fonda. Over the years, it has changed ownership several times, and has been variously named the UCLAN, the Metro, the Westwood and the Westwood Crest. In the 1980s, Pacific Theatres acquired the theatre and, in partnership with Disney, remodelled and redecorated it, with designs by Joe Musil, who also worked on the update of Disney's El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood. Most recently, it was known as the Majestic Crest while independently owned and operated by Robert Bucksbaum from 2003 to 2010. In August of 2010, Bucksbaum sold the theatre to international firm Bigfoot Entertainment. Georgia-based Carmike Cinemas operates the theatre for Bigfoot and upgraded it for digital projection and 3-D capability, with a new silver screen. The Crest Theatre offers a classic Hollywood Art Deco theatre experience.
