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.

48 Hour Room Check

Fremont Hotel & Casino

Boyd’s the owner of many locals properties such as the Gold Coast and Orleans as well as Downtown properties such as the California and Fremont haave announced a new 48 hour policy for rooms with do not disturb signs on the door. The new policy is called a safety and welfare check and is in response to the Route 91 tragedy where the shooter had several days to set up, in the past room service would want to enter the room after 72 hours with a do not disturb sign on the door. I myself am a night owl and like to sleep in late when i’m in Las Vegas and this new policy could be a little bit of an inconvenience but under the circumstances i understand the reason for it.

Gold Coast Buffet To Close?

Gold Coast SIgn NightTheir are rumors that the Ports O’ Call buffet at the near Strip Gold Coast may soon be closing to be replaced with a twenty four hour cafe concept which may be similar or the same as the Courtyard Cafe at sister property the Orleans. The rumors also include the possible closing of the Cortez fine dining restaurant at the Gold Coast with another restaurant to replace it. Boyds PR has no comment about the possible closing although Boyds did recently replace a restaurant at the California Downtown with a noodle house so a revamp of its restaurants across its properties which haven’t been changed for a long time is quite possible. The Ports O’ Call buffet was always one of the less expensive buffet options in town and it would be a shame to see it close, although i can understand boyds making changes to improve the income of its restaurants at its locations.
