I was 6 on May 25,1977 and my parents went to see “Star Wars” at the Chinese in Hollywood on their wedding anniversary,leaving me and my sisters with a sitter that day. Flash forward to 1979 and the re-release that had the “Empire Strikes Back” trailer. It was at the original Boulder Theatre in Boulder City,NV. I lived in Henderson at the time. I was awestruck. it was awesome! When the “Star Wars” title card came on and the theme was blasting out through the speakers,i was hooked as was the audience. It was truly one of the greatest experinces of my life. Too bad it wasn’t a 70mm print.
The theatre has apparently,once again,closed down.
There are no showtimes posted on the website.
The drive in on lamb and sahara was called the Desert 5. it closed in 1988 and was replaced by the Desert 16 cimemas,itself now closed.
Opened in 1969 as a Loews three screener. Sold to General Cinema in the 70s'.
The back five theatres opened in 1979.
Adjacent to the back building,there was a Baskin-Robbins ice cream store,a comedy club called “The Laugh Stop” and a Bally’s Fitness.
Opened as a National General/Mann theatre,taken over by Syufy Theatres.(Now Century Theatres)
Its sister theatre was the Boulevard Twin located on Maryland Parkway near the Boulevard Mall and its three screen Plitt Parkway 3.
This theatre operated as a Plitt theatre.
when Cineplex Odeon bought Plitt,the theatre was sold to Syufy.(Later Century Theatres,now a unit of Cinemark Theatres)
This theatre was actually called the Rainbow and it was located at the Rainbow Casino and was situated above the casino floor accessible only by staircase.
The Eldorado was next door and had no movie theatre.
