Located at the southern end of the ‘Strip’, not far from the Mandelay Bay Hotel & Casino is the newly built open air Town Square shopping center. The Town Square 18 is at the rear of the center in its own stand alone building.

It opened on November 15, 2007 with "Beowulf" in one of the screens, presented in digital Real D 3D. All the screens have digital projection & sound and seven of them have 3D capability. Seating is provided for over 4,000 with capacities in the screens ranging from 470, down to 105. All have modern rocker seats installed in a stadium format.

It was operated by the Dallas, TX based; Rave Motion Pictures chain until January 2013, when AMC took over.

Here is a November 2007 article from the Las Vegas Review-Journal:

This place irks me. I don’t like Clark County entities claiming to be Las Vegas.

Too far to pay for the gas to see a movie from my house. If you must know, I live a mile from the Suncoast and Village Square theaters. I prefer to walk.

Soon to be part of the Cinemark chain. Most likely under the Century name like the others in town,though it would be nice to call it a Cinemark.

From what I hear, this and a few other locations will NOT go to Cinemark. They were once branded as “Rave Digital Media” theatres on their website, so likely as another company. So unless there’s another announcement I think this and a few others won’t be Cinemark.

Basically = Old National Amusements site = Cinemark+The Rave in Baldwin Hills, L.A.

It may also be a regulatory issue; Cinemark/Century is already the major player in the greater Las Vegas area with five megaplexes and over eighty screens.

Naw. Regal has enough of a presence in the area to negate that. Though the Rave is usually the highest grossing theatre in Vegas, Regal has a number of strong competitors against existing Century locations.

However, DOJ or FTC may see the situation as an opportunity to strengthen the presence of another competitor against the dominance of both Regal and Cinemark/Century. When AMC absorbed Loews-Cineplex, regulators forced AMC to divest some of the former Loews-Cineplex theaters in places such as Chicago.

Another possibility may be the that Rave only leases Town Square property and that the landlord, for whatever reason, does not want to go with Cinemark or that Cinemark does not see the property as viable for some reason. Cinemark did not pick up the Rave CityPlace 14 in Kalamazoo though it is proposing to pick up Rave’s other theaters in Michigan.

This isn’t going to be one of the Cinemark acquired locations. This one is going to AMC (along with 9 others).
