The Fremont Theatre was attached to the famous casino/hotel of the same name. It opened in 1947, and was owned by Earle C. Strebe, and operated by George Ingram. The auditorium had a raised stadium section at the rear.

It, too, has been closed and demolished.

There is a brief glimpse of the marquee in the 1977 film “The Gauntlet.” Clint Eastwood is in an ambulance escorting a prisoner to the airport as it passes the Fremont.

In 1952, I was going to school at LVHS and working part time at this theater, I really loved my job. I think the manager at that time was a Mr. Ealy. I’ll never forget New Years Day the movie showing was Breaking The Sound Barrier with Natalie Wood and Karl Mauldin. After work we would go next door and have the best French fries in town. Down the street there was an Orange Julius stand that we went to also. My grandfather was a bookkeeper for Las Vegas Distributing. Those movies were the best ever made

Breaking The Sound Barrier was a British film from around 1952—-Natalie Wood and Karl Mauldin were in Bombers B-52 in 1957.

I was the doorman of the Fremont and the afternoon manager of the Huntridge for most of 1959. New mr. Katz and Mr. Zumar.
