It took the Avco from being one of the very best screens in Westwood to be virtually irrelevant overnight. As can be seen from this photo uploaded here by stepwest, the AVCO was mostly demolished and rebuilt for iPic.

Reclining chairs, pillows, and blankets will be provided and at the push of a button, moviegoers can summon waiters for meals and cocktails. I remember it well! No corrugated aluminum side walls, no shadow box screens, but surrounded with yellow drapes.

But if you were brand new, they may literally have forgotten you! But before the theatre was completed, the cknema was closed and GCC wedtwood brought in to operate it.

Joe Vogel on July 10, at 7: The downstairs theatre even had TWO pairs of screen curtains all three had curtains, though. Recent comments view all comments.

It was opened May 24, with 2, seats in three auditoriums. Seats were not pushbacks, although the carpeting looked like the typical GCC type.

Lawyers would be the last people anyone would want to get into a naming rights conflict with. Years later lucasfilm sold thx to creative of sound blaster fame and then Avvo bought THX.

Want to be emailed when a new comment is posted about this theater? Plinfesty, I never really forgave them for twinning the main house. Located in Westwood, formerly the AVCO Center Vaco, this 4-screen theatre did bang-up business, especially on the weekends — with lines snaking down the block. I saw that opening day at the Avco as well!
