Regal UA Showcase Theatre 8

Opened on March 7, 1997, the United Artist’s Showcase 8 is located in the Showcase Mall building close to the MGM Grand Hotel, on its northern side. The actual street entrance is located on MGM Street, and is tucked away from view from the busy ‘Strip’. There is a presence on S. Las Vegas Boulevard in the part of the Showcase Mall building which contains M&M World as one of its tenants.

In January 2009 the S. Las Vegas Boulevard (Strip) location, directly in front of the UA Showcase was redeveloped as a Planet Hollywood Restaurant which was hoped to generate a more pleasing approach to the United Artist’s Theatre. The theatre was operated by the Regal Entertainment Group and was the last movie theatre to operate on the ‘Strip’. It was closed around January 23, 2018.

First movie I saw here was End of Days. All during college, I dated a nutty heiress, and since this theater had like 3 AM late late late showings, I was always dragged out to those. I recall seeing many movies here, but only can recall End of Days.

A key to me recalling correctly is my personal LaserDisc/DVD/Blu-Ray collection. If I saw a movie at a theater, most likely, I own a copy of it. If I didn’t, I usually have a TV recording or a VHS tape.

I think I saw one of the Harry Potters here, and some kind of superhero movie.

This movie theater is horrible! Oh my god and its right in the middle of the Las Vegas Strip where everything is supposed to be nice??? This place is ghetto as hell! The seats are so old and used that they have all had their padding dissolved over the years and all you are sitting on is metal wiring!!! After about 30 minutes of sitting on it it becomes painful and cuts off your circulation! I almost couldn’t even sit through the whole movie!!! And it was a movie that I had been looking foreward to coming out for a whole year and waiting to see on opening day and then I went to see it and this seat ruined the freaking movie!!! I could hardly pay attention to the movie because after halfway through I was in pain and my circulation was cut off…and I’m not even an old man or anything!!! Its ridiculous!

And then when I got out of the movie and went to the bathroom it was absolutely disguisting…like something you would expect from a really nasty dive bar…It was despicable.

And when I complained to the manager about the seats all she did was laugh at me and say “yea we are known for our old school seats” like its cute or something. Didn’t even offer me a couple of free movie passes to get me back or anything even though I told her I wouldn’t want to come there again, and that I am a local. Guess what its not cute that the seats have metal wiring poking up into your ass. And they are ALL like that. I changed seats several times. They are all like that.

Save yourself the money and go to a different theater this one is ridiculous. And I mean come on movie tickets arent cheap either. You’ll be pissed when you pay to see a movie you are excited about and cant hardly concentrate due to the discomfort.

When I lived in Vegas was grateful to have movies on the strip – ConAir, The Devil’s Own and a couple more especially late night…but yes it was at best a generic 80s pre-stadium seating UA plex

If I recall correctly, after this theater closed, they were supposed to renovate it into a stand-up theater, but dropped those plans as the place was recently renovated to a “FlyOver” attraction.

There is still very poorly blacked out UA logos around the Showcase Mall. It’s sad that the theater closed.

In its last years of operation, the theater went by “Regal UA Showcase Theatre 8”.
