At 1602 W. Sylvania Ave., near the corner of Jackman Rd., sits a historical theater built in 1926. On the outside, the Westwood Theatre is an eyesore with crumbling brick and peeling paint.
On the inside? A Twin Peaks fantasy accented with deep red velvet— or so the photos show.
These days, few enter the Westwood. And even fewer admit to it. The space has served as a porn theater, a “play club” and host of other erotic activities for nearly 30 years.
Currently closed, the last comment on the Westwood Art Theatre & Video’s inactive Facebook page from was three years ago; a bold Toledoan asks “just wondering why are the glory holes taped over now…?”
The Sylvania Avenue Neighbors are hosting a community meeting for “Reinvisioning The Westwood Theater“. Share your thoughts during the meeting.
2-5pm. Saturday, March 11.
