The Screen Fades To Black

pool season

The Las Vegas Strip has lost its only movie theater with the recent closure of the Regal United Artists Theater at the Showcase Mall. The Showcase Mall near the MGM Grand has been getting a makeover and the movie theater has been has since 1998 but the space may be better used as restaurants or clubs instead. The movie theater here always seemed to me a little odd location as if you wanted to drive to see a movie there you would have to deal with Strip traffic and if you walked you would have to take elevators from the Strip. If you want to take a break from the casino floor to watch a movie there still are movie theaters nearby at the Palms as well as the Orleans.
