The Gold Coast was originally operated by UA before being taken over by Century. It has been closed for several years now, but no great loss as the theaters were unremarkable.

The theaters were unremarkable, but they had great popcorn and VERY cheap prices for all concession stand goodies! :–)

It also showed a lot of independent and lesser-known films that other theatres wouldn’t show. I was very disappointed when this theatre closed.

I saw Ghost Dog: Way of the Samurai at the Gold Coast Twin in 1999. It was the only cinema in town that was playing the movie. The usher took our tickets and said, “Second theater on your right.” I still laugh at that unnecessarily descriptive set of directions. There were no doors on the left and with two screens, how hard can it be?

These theaters weren’t glam…but when I lived in Vegas in 96/97 The strip was underscreened i.e the UA Showcase was just opening, the Orleans and Palm screens hadnt opened and as previous correspondents remind us…these showed independent pictures that no one else picked up…It was odd stepping out of When We Were Kings and Slingblade onto a tired casino floor but was grateful to have them there

Am surprised that with Vegas' growth, Landmark hasn’t gone into to Henderson to deliver some indy films

In regards to the usher giving directions, I used to run a single screen that had two sets of doors. People would ask all the time which auditorium it was in. And at the twin I ran for awhile they would ask and I would respond “Try one, if it’s not there it’s the other one.” Then politely smile and tell them which auditorium.

I would love to see some better pictures of the Gold Coast though. All I’ve ever seen is a picture of the casino sign pointing the way to the theatre.

I remember coming here a few times when I was a pre-teen with either of my parents. As others have mentioned, this was the only real independent theater of its kind. The theaters were of same/lesser quality as other Century Theatres at the time like the Cinedome 12 and the Redrock 11.

Despite seeing the 1994 Rob Reiner cinematic classic North at this location, I actually saw some great films here such as Hamlet (the Kenneth Branagh version), Mallrats and Chasing Amy easily come to mind.

Towards the end of its run, they actually did double features for the same cost as a regular ticket.

1998 – The Butcher Boy. Theater was crowded.

Always wanted to see a movie at this theater. So I did. Never returned, because it’s just hard for me to get to. Shame it’s closed.

Wonderful set of twin theatres at the Gold Coast. I remember them being just massive in size. Great snack bar with very “cheap eats.” Popcorn and candy was very inexpensive, compared to other Vegas cinemas. A real potpourri of films seen here: “Dirty Rotten Scoundrels,” “Tombstone,”, “Color of Night,” and for my 10th Birthday party “Problem Child 2.” Classics, no?
