The Huntridge Theatre is a classic movie palace which opened in 1944. The Huntridge began a new life in 1992 as The Huntridge Performing Arts Theatre then suffered a roof collapse in 1995. The Huntridge was then rebuilt and became a full production theatre. For more information, see this website.

The theatre is built in the streamlined moderne style designed by architect S. Charles Lee. Added to the National Register of Historic Places as well as the State register, the Huntridge closed on January 1, 2002 and has been vacant since.

Since closing, various threats to demolish the venerable theatre have been challenged by both local officials as well as the community.

The Las Vegas Review Journal November 29, 2008 edition reported that the Huntridge may not be meeting the wrecking ball after all. According to the owner Eli Mizrachi, the Huntridge will not reopen as a theatre but as a commercial development of retailers and offices. Plans are to keep the Huntridge sign while the building exterior will be renovated.
