It has been in the works for a while and this March, The Beverly Theater becomes Las Vegas‘ newest venue for all things entertainment.
The venue is on 6th street between Clark and Bonneville and is more “Smith Center” than “casino theater”. The two story film house and performance theater has several places to entertain in different ways.
The main theater features 150 seats that can sit those looking for a a premiere of an indie film. This is, after all, Las Vegas’ only indie film house.
Then, with a push of a button, the stadium-esque seating can be whisked away to allow for more room for live and experiential performances. The theater features a booming sound system that is finely tuned for the room acoustically.
The Beverly Theater also features a terrace featuring an L-shaped bar with wine and beer options called “Segue”. There’s also a beautiful courtyard that will surely play host to charity events for years to come.
The venue is yet another gift to the arts scene of the city. Named after Beverly Rogers of The Rogers Foundation, the 14,306 square foot venue is bound to make jaws drop.
What is in store for opening week?
- FRIDAY, MARCH 3TH – Lights, Camera, Action
The festivities begin with a red-carpet opening night, where The Beverly Theater will be screening Past Lives, a Sundance-screened film from Korea. (These are the type of films you won’t typically find at your local AMC). After the movie, the film’s producers will be on-hand for an audience Q&A.
- SATURDAY, MARCH 4TH & SUNDAY, MARCH 5TH – A Flick And It’s Lit
A totally free and open to the public event! The Writer’s Block (an independent bookstore) join forces with the Black Mountain Institute for programming that includes readings, question and answer sessions with authors, a movie screening and more.
- TUESDAY, MARCH 7TH – The Beverly Theater Goes Live With EKOH
Homegrown talent Ekoh takes to the main theater for a musical performance!
This is a huge feather in the cap of Downtown. There will be events a-plenty over the years to come, and if you’re looking to check out the venue for yourself, visit TheBeverlyTheater.com. Events (even the free ones) require an RSVP, so reserve your spot. If the venue is half as good as their Chief Experience Officer Kip Kelly‘s twitter account, it’s going to be fantastic.
