The Fox Village Theatre in Westwood was bought Wednesday by a coalition of directors led by Jason Reitman, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Reitman is a Canadian filmmaker and producer. Some of his films include “Ghostbusters: Afterlife,” “Juno,” “Thank You for Smoking,” “Up in the Air” and “Jennifer’s Body.”

The new owners of the theater include directors Christopher Nolan, Judd Apatow, Seth Rogen and Bradley Cooper, among others, according to the LA Times.

Several UCLA alumni participated in the acquisition, including Justin Lin, Gina Prince-Bythewood, Jonathan Dayton, Valerie Faris, Brad Silberling and Alexander Payne, according to the LA Times.

The Regency Village Theatre first opened in 1931 and has been on the market for over a year.
