LAS VEGAS, NV — With all of Las Vegas struggling, the Galaxy Neonopolis closed last week amid financial problems.

The silver screen will fade to black at downtown’s Fremont Street Experience, when Galaxy Theatres closes its Neonopolis multiplex following Thursday’s shows.

Galaxy managed the 11-screen theater for the troubled center’s owners, taking over in September 2006 from Crown Theatres, which opened the theater in May 2002.

This place looked like it was in trouble last summer when I was there. The other stores in the complex had closed, so the whole thing looked abandoned.

Crown Theaters – what a strange company. I remember they said ‘we specialize in locations where people say 'what are you crazy for building there’ “ – I guess some have worked out for them, others not so much – this one and a 16 screen theater down in Florida that had a giant screen are closed. They built fine theaters that were as good as anything AMC or Regal did for the most part, and a few gambles I think have paid off (their 17-plex in Hartford seems to do solid business in an area that isn’t where you’d exsactly expect to find a theater). The company is now out of the business after having sold off sites to Clearview, Bow Tie, Keratoses, Galaxy, and Cobb.
