Boxoffice of August 31, 1970, says that the Westown was housed in a geodesic dome. The theater was designed by a Calfiornia architect named David Jacobson Jr., according to the Boxoffice item. I’m not sure if it’s the same David Jacobson who designed many buidlings in Las Vegas and Atlantic City, including a number of major projects for Donald Trump, but odds are it was.

There are two things I know about this theater:
(1) It was a round structure, very unique in theaters, and
(2) It was razed for something else, I believe a bank branch office building.
I personally know the man who bought all the laminated timber beams from the building. They were later lost in a fire.
