The MGM Grand Theatre, with 300 love seats, was located in the MGM Grand Hotel shopping arcade and presented classic MGM films. The theatre had classic movie theatre features, complete with a marquee, ticket booth and concession stand. To make the movie-going experience complete, a cartoon and newsreel were included. With tickets at a nominal price of $2.50, it was made profitable by its bar and cocktail service at a press of a button.

The MGM Grand Hotel history goes back to December 5, 1973, when it opened on the site of the old Bonanza Hotel, which is remembered for its first-run movie theatre.

Classics like “Gone With The Wind” and MGM Grand’s namesake “Grand Hotel” were included but newer films such as 1968’s “2001: A Space Odyssey” was also screened.

An exception occurred at times when Warner Bros. “Casablanca” was shown.

The MGM Grand was destroyed by fire November 21, 1980, and the reconstructed hotel, reopened July 30, 1981, with no news of a movie theatre.
