Northern Nevada’s first digital theater lands in Carson City.
Northern Nevada’s only all-digital theater, Galaxy Theatre at Casino Fandango in Carson City, provides movie aficionados with a unique way to watch Tinseltown’s best—in high definition. If the hi-def actors aren’t exciting enough for you, Galaxy also offers what Rafe Cohen, president of Galaxy Theatres company, calls real 3-D technology.
“With digital projection the human eye can process 140 images every second—70 per eye—for a completely lifelike experience,” Cohen says.
Open since late summer, Carson City’s newest entertainment attraction also offers free Monday Night Football screenings that puts even the biggest big screen to shame.
Galaxy Fandango is open daily from 30 minutes prior to the first showing until 15 minutes following the final showing with midnight showings on Friday and Saturday nights. Tickets are $9 for adults, $6.25 matinee, and $6 for children and seniors. All 3-D shows are $11, $8.25 matinee. Tickets booked online incur a service fee from $1 to $1.45.
All-digital Las Vegas complex set to open in 2009
M Resort, Spa and Casino, an all-new $1 billion resort to be completed in spring 2009 on South Las Vegas Boulevard, has struck a partnership with Galaxy Theatres.
Expected to open in fall 2009, the 63,000 square-foot movie entertainment theater will feature 14 screens and 3,100 seats. The theater will offer digital and 3-D movie projection, spacious auditoriums, oversized movie screens, all-stadium luxury seating, and digital sound.
When complete, the all-digital entertainment complex will be directly accessible from the outside as well as inside on the casino level to provide convenience for all guests.
