City mulls future of historic Vegas Huntridge Theater

Posted: Updated:
LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

Las Vegas city council is slated Tuesday to take up action on a proposed special permit to turn the aging Huntridge Theater into a second-hand store.

The owners of the building on E. Charleston Boulevard just east of S. Maryland Parkway expressed plans to convert the theater.

The building closed in 2004 for renovations but those plans never went forward.

Ever since, the Huntridge Theater lay empty and, in the process, it accumulated trash and the city's homeless, the owners, limited liability company King George, said.

The plans, though, aren't without contention from historians and musicians in the Las Vegas area who want the place preserved.

They say the theater, which has existed since the 1940s, attracted big Hollywood names, concerts and recitals. Those are more reasons to keep its historical significance in the city, activists said.

A public hearing is scheduled in city council chambers at 6 p.m. to discuss the Huntridge license.

What do you think should happen to the Huntridge Theater?
