. The only movie theater on the Las Vegas Strip has closed after more than Twenty Years, a manager said today.
The eight-screen Regal United Artists Display Theater at the Display Mall, on the north side of the MGM Grand, opened in 1997.
“Absolutely nothing has actually been put in its location,” Showcase Mall Manager Jason Crawford stated. He referred other concerns to Regal Cinemas, which did not right away respond to an ask for comment.
Online evaluations of the shuttered theater were mixed, with guests utilizing words like “old,” “dated” and “vintage” to explain it. Others stated the theater was tidy and had a great image.
Unlike modern-day theaters with stadium-style seating, Display Theater featured rows of seats on the same elevation.
Theater near the Strip include areas at the Palms and Orleans, as well as at Town Square shopping mall, simply south of the Strip.
