A Westwood Village landmark's history is recognized
The 68-year-old Crest Theatre has been declared a historic landmark by the City of Los Angeles as its owner struggles to keep the Art Moderne-style movie palace afloat.
During World War II the theater screened only newsreels, and after the war it was one of the first Los Angeles venues to show foreign films. The Times' Martha Groves is working on an update to an earlier story on the theater and the challenge to keep it open.
