Located in downtown Las Vegas, the 4 Star Theatre was opened on February 20, 1969 with Gary Lockwood in “They Came to Rob Las Vegas”. It later became an adult movie house before it was closed in the early-1990’s and was demolished by the city.

This was owned by David Friedman, who had co-founded the Pussycat theater chain and who built this theater from scratch as an adult movie house after he had sold his interest in Pussycat theaters to Vince Miranda. It closed sometime in the early 1990’s, likely due to declining business.

This was the FOUR Star Theater. ;–)

My family and I saw the Clint Eastwood trilogy, “Fistful of Dollars,” “For a Few Dollars More” and “The Good, The Bad and The Ugly,” back in about ‘69 or '70. My ex husband and I visited a couple of times after it changed 'format.’ It was the only adult theater that wasn’t a ‘mini’… It was full size, full-screen, and attracted good-size crowds – lots of Japanese businessmen traveling along and with their wives/female partners.

Yep… And it’s the same one referred to as “Five Star” here. The original poster has the wrong name for it. :–)

I remember that theater too. It wasn’t very big and I remember seeing the movie “Hell In The Pacific” (1968) with Lee Marvin. Not to long after that the theater turned into a xxx rated joint.
