Westwood Twin Cinema

The Westwood Twin Cinema opened on March 30, 1973 with Gene Wilder in “Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory” & Pat Boone in “The Cross and the Switchblade”. It was owned and operated by a retired military man. He sold it a few years later to Cinemas Southwest Theatres out of Corpus Christi. Cinemas Southwest had also taken over the Callaghan Twin and the Perrin Twin. They ran as dollar theatres. The Westwood Twin Theatre was closed in 1983.
