AMC Avco Center Review (Westwood, CA)
The AMC Avco Center is a four screen movie theater in Westwood, located on Wilshire Blvd, just a few blocks away from Westwood Village. It's an old theater. The seats aren't very comfortable and the screen and sound quality aren't great. I don't regularly see movies here, but I sometimes use it as a backup, when a movie I really want to see is only playing locally at AMC theatres and is sold out at the AMC Century City. What I like about the Avco is that there are plenty of seats, and the movies rarely sell out here. It's a great way to avoid the crowds, parking issues and lines that you get with the bigger movie houses.
Parking for the Avco is fairly convenient. If you don't mind paying to park, there's a garage behind the theater that charges around $3. I almost always find parking on Glendon Ave or on Westwood Blvd, south of Wilshire. Both are a short walk to the theatre. If you're going to a movie after 8PM, you don't need to feed the parking meters.
