Huntridge Theatre
Las Vegas, NV
The Huntridge Theatre was designed by S. Charles Lee and opened in 1944. The theatre features a 75 foot tall tower with seven foot tall letters. It closed as a movie theatre in 1989. It reopened in 1993 as the Huntridge Performing Arts Theatre. After a roof collapse in 1995, the theatre was almost entirely rebuilt. It closed in 2001 and was used as storage for the adjacent furniture store. In 2004, it was used for some heavy metal concerts but it has been unused since then. The building was repainted in 2013 and there is renewed hope that the building can be saved. These photos are from 2014. For more, see these websites: 1 and 2. [map]

The Nevada Theatre was built in 1902 as the New House Hotel. It was renamed the Nevada Hotel in 1910. The building was converted into the Nevada Theatre in the late 1920s. It closed in the late 1940s. I don't know if it ever reopened but it has been closed for many years. For more, see this website. [map]
