The Huntridge Theater is one of the most well-known landmarks in downtown Las Vegas.

Built nearly 80 years ago, generations of Las Vegas residents knew it as a central gathering place to see movies, concerts and friends.

But it hasn’t been operational for nearly 20 years. And despite it being a federal historic site, it’s in severe need of a makeover, and, perhaps, a different path forward.

A lot of that will depend on Dapper Companies, which bought the property two years ago for $4 million.

On Friday night, the company held a celebration at the theatre with live bands, food and the lighting of the theater’s iconic 75-foot-tall sign. Could this be the beginning of new life for the venerable theatre?

Guests: J Dapper, principal, Dapper Companies; Darren Cole, artistic director, SoHo Playhouse; Steve Franklin, realtor and community resident/advocate
