LOS ANGELES, CA — The Majestic Crest Theatre is for sale and is currently on the market.

The last true neighborhood theater in Los Angles! The Majestic Crest Theatre is featured in the opening montage of “The Tonight Show” with Conan O Brien! The Majestic Crest Theater has a flashing marquee that can cause seizures at night, the interior of this Westwood theatre makes you feel like you slipped on a banana peel and ended up smack dab in Golden Age Hollywood. With an enormous screen and great sound (that’s right – one screen), Majestic Crest Theatre hosts new release independent films with vim and vigor. When you’re sitting in your comfortable seats, don’t forget to look up and watch the stars, just don’t let them distract you. One of the countries longest running and last single screen movie theatres. Westwood' s Crest Theatre was originally built as a live theatre in 1939 by Frances Seymour Fonda, wife of Henry Fonda and mother of Peter and Jane Fonda. This unique venue is known for its landmark, hand painted murals depicting establishments from Westwood and Hollywood during the 1940s. The theater is currently operated by the existing owner, who would consider leasing back and continuing to operate the theater after a sale.

Centrally located on Westwood Blvd.Located in the northern central portion of Los Angeles' West Side, Westwood is bordered by Brentwood on the west, Bel-Air on the north, Century City and Beverly Hills on the east, West Los Angeles on the southwest, Rancho Park on the southeast, and Sawtelle on the south and southwest, near Los Angeles National Cemertery, Westwood Park, shopping stores, restaurants and minutes away from the 405 freeways exit off Wilshire Blvd. The district’s boundaries are generally considered to be Santa Monica Blvd. (or Olympic Blvd. and, by some, Pico Blvd.) on the southeast, the city limits of Beverly Hills on the northeast, and Sunset Boulevard on the north; its southwestern boundary is the San Diego Freeway between Santa Monica and Wilshire boulevards, and Veteran Avenue between Wilshire and Sunset.

I don’t quite understand what you mean by ‘last true neighborhood theatre in LA’ — what about the Royal and Nuart, for instance?

The Vista, The New Beverly, the Los Feliz 3 ?

You can thank the awesomely talented JOSEPH MUSIL for the fabulous interior re-design of the Crest.
His “signature” can be found on quite a few more movie palaces in southern California, especially Disney’s El Capitan in Hollywood.

Ross/Cinema Treasures Staff: How long will you allow this guy to repost this listing for this theatre? It’s parody at this point to see his countless reposts of this!

And if you click on his name to bring up his profile, it’s just a lot of spam.

I love how information Mr. Chavez has posted numerous times for free on the Crest page here on CT now is going to cost a minimum of $30 to read. Does Mr. Chavez also own LoopNet?

Anyway, as much as I love the Crest, the theatre just doesn’t draw squat in customers. But then, the whole of Westwood doesn’t draw squat in customers.
