The movie theatre in the bottom of the Grand Sierra Resort has opened as the Grand Sierra Cinema showing second run movies (usually movies that have recently left the cineplex) for $3 a ticket!
From the RGJ story:
"The dollar houses or discount houses of the past didn't have the best seating, not the best sound, employees, maintenance, the whole works," he said. "Our goal was to create a top-of-the-line facility. You know, top-of-line sound, picture and experience for an affordable price."
To meet that goal, Bloomhuff said, he invested about $150,000 in digital sound equipment and renovations.
"We've increased the screen sizes and then we've done a partial remodel through the theater," he said. "But, of course, we've left the love seats, which people enjoy most."
A budget theatre where my shoes don't stick to the floor! I'm in.
They do not have a website yet so I have made a quick and dirty blog where I will post their showtimes:
There is an RSS feed too ;)
The phone number is 775-789-2093
I spoke to the owner and he said that they expect their full website will be up in a few weeks. When that happens I will make a final post directing people to their real website and shut down the temporary blog.
Wow things move fast on the web these days! I posted this yesterday afternoon on renodiscontents.com and later that same day the rgj put up a story linking to the temp blog!
