Tropicana Theatres, independent movie house closes

When I started doing this blog about events in Las Vegas, I had NO idea how quickly things change in this town. I should have guessed that if buildings can go up and down in a matter of months, that events on the human scale would be measured in hours.

I am sorry to report that the Tropicana Theatres closed, and closed so suddenly that the CineVegas Film Festival is now scrambling to find a venue for their Art House Screening Series. My article on the need for an Art House movie theatre (foreign and independent films) seems ever more relevant.

NOTE: Tropicana has reopened as Tropicana Cinemas. See “Tropicana Cinemas is re-opened.”
