The Westborn was a rather good theater, all things considered. The movies were second run and the showtimes were limited during the week (on the weekend there were matinees). However, compared to the Ford Tel (the other local dollar theater) the theater was less populated and felt more like a smaller version of a larger theater. I can't recall the last films I saw here, but I want to say it was in the winter of 1989/1990ish (I remember taking the kids to see The Wizard and Tremors). Either way, there was a quality to the theater many bigger theaters today lack.

The Westborn Theatre was built by ABC Theatres, AKA: Plitt Michigan Theatres and then sold to NGT with the Woods Theatres included.

Built as a 900 seat, single-screen movie house in 1973 for the Nicholas George chain, the Westborn was twinned in 1980 by Louis Wiltse, with each auditorium seating 425. In 1986, the theater was sold to the AMC chain, renamed it the AMC Westborn 2 and operated it as a discount house. It was closed in the late 90s, when AMC shuttered many of its smaller and older theaters in the Detroit area. Today, the former Westborn houses a tire store. Cinema Treasures Link.
