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.
