The El Portal Theatre was built on the site of the old Las Vegas Airdome. It opened on June 21, 1928 with a pre-release screening of Clara Bow’s movie “Ladies of the Mob”.
It was the first building in Las Vegas to install air-conditioning. It was remodeled in 1961 to the plans of architect J. Maher Weller.
Closed in the late-1970’s, it became El Portal Gifts and then served as an Indian Arts & Crafts store. They moved to the next-door building in 2018. Some of the decorative interior remains intact, mainly the ceiling beams.
