In 1929, William Fox announced his intention to build a movie theatre in the rapidly growing university area of Westwood Village. Two years later, the theatre opened as the Fox Westwood Village in the summer of 1931.

Since then, this historic landmark cinema has been remodeled a number of times but it retains its classic Art Deco style including the striking 170-foot “wedding cake” tower emblazoned with neon letters. The Fox name still lights up the top of the theatre and by night, the tower illuminates Westwood Village and can be seen from nearby Wilshire Blvd.

The theater has been a timeless location for multiple generations of moviegoers and continues to be a top venue for high-profile, red carpet movie premieres.  There’s something deeply satisfying about the movie experience here.  You are greeted by a uniformed usher who guides you to the spacious grand lobby, your snacks are presented at an art deco snack bar, a carpeted staircase takes you to a balcony seating area, and red velvet curtains open to reveal a massive screen.  Not only is this theater an L.A. Historical Cultural Monument, it has remained resilient in the wake of so many single-screen theater closures.

Today, the theater is currently operated by Regency Theaters and the latest show times can be found here.
