The old Showcase is gone. The new MJR Theatre is now being built. They have a couple of the walls up all ready and you can get an ideal on the size of the theatres that will be there.

As of Friday, 3 March 2008 the Showcase Cinemas in Westland have closed for good, after eighteen years of providing Westland and the surrounding area with a quality, first-run movie house. I have seen many films there over the years. Competition from the Emagine Theatre in Canton of Ford Road just a few miles west was too much. Sad to see another theatre in Westland go, that means there are no movie theatres left in the city (as the Quo Vadis just north of the Showcase on Wayne Road closed back in 2002).

Capacity: 1980; I now work over at this location, so Ill be providing some better pictures for you soon (hopefully). I can also get some of the QV if you need them, but you already seem to have quite a few.
