The Neonopolis complex was built in 2001, opening in May 2002. It heralded the beginning of the revival of downtown Las Vegas and features antique neon signs from the city’s past, together with an open-air shopping mall, a food court and entertainment centre, which includes the Neonopolis Cinema. It was built on land (part of) which had contained the 1972 built, Cinema 1-2-3.

There was a free-standing ticket office located on the sidewalk at the Northeast corner of 4th Street and East Fremont Street. It had signage giving the name ‘Neonopolis 14’, maybe three screens have been closed? Whatever the answer is, the Galaxy Neonopolis 11 was closed by the Galaxy Theatre Corporation in May 2009.

In July 2012, it was announced the building would be converted into ‘The World’s Largest Gay Nightclub’, known as Krave Massive. It will also feature a two screen cinema that will show independent gay & lesbian films. Set to open in spring 2013.

I remember passing by this theatre back when I visited Las Vegas in May 2009 (shortly after it closed). It was an empty shell that seemed to have everything still there (there were even sun-faded standees of early 2008 releases still in the building).

I was the opening GM of the Crown Neonopolis 14. It was a very nice theatre for it’s location. The city’s parking debacle is what killed this location. Everybody knows that YOU DO NOT PAY TO PARK IN VEGAS. Especially if you live there.

I hate to hear that this theatre closed. I always stay at the Golden Nugget when I’m in Vegas, so would walk to see a movie. ‘Hancock’ and ‘Under the Same Moon’ come to mind. I didn’t get to make my annual trip last year, so I guess that’s why I had no idea it had shut down. A shame, usually after a busy week of gambling and partying on the strip it was nice to spend an evening at the Neonopolis before my flight home to NC :*(

I saw about four, forgettable movies here with my wife. I enjoyed the theater, though, and was wondering what happened to it.

It’s currently being being renovated as “The World’s Largest Gay Nightclub” to be called Krave Massive. It should be open by early January. Construction pics and a floor plan can be seen Krave Massive’s Facebook page.

The gay nightclub will also contain Guest House Theatres – a two screen movie theatre showing gay-themed movies, so it looks like technically this one will reopen – just with a drastically reduced screen count.

I only ever saw one movie here “War of the Worlds” (Tom Cruise version) The people were rude, the concessions were even higher priced than normal for the time. As a lifetime resident of Las Vegas this place just never appealed to me.

The venue closed,again,in late August because its owner failed to get a state tax license and because he owes the city and state money. Its sister club,Drink & Drag,located in the same building,has also closed. No word on when either will open.
