Downtown needs an art-house movie theater

I loved the Las Vegas Sun’s March 17 article, “Zappos CEO envisions a new community downtown,” which included Tony Hsieh brainstorming about ways to upgrade the quality of life for his employees and that of downtown Las Vegas, where I live.

All of the music enthusiasm is great, but what downtown needs is a state-of-the-art, art-house movie theater. It is absurd to have to drive for miles to see any motion picture, no matter how mainstream.

The selection of movies throughout our otherwise pleasant valley is resolutely simple-minded.

Let’s put cinematic art at the heart of downtown.

  1. Uh, Terry, get your friends together, pool your money, invest it and open a theater in DT LV. That's what made America great. Entrepreneurship. Ever considered that?

  2. Maybe he doesn't have the money but the idea. Good idea, better than all the other failed projects down there. In fact, I think the City should develop the theatre, just like they are developing the Symphony Hall.
