I missed this item about the Reno Hilton’s old Keystone II movie theater being reopened as the Grand Sierra Cinema. Pretty cool news, even though I’m probably dating myself by mentioning that I saw the first Austin Powers movie there. And the awesome “The City of Lost Children”
They’re showing second-run, budget movies, which is great because as far as I know, Reno hasn’t had one of those theaters since the Greenbrae 8 shut down years ago. Prices have jumped from $1.50 to $3 in the intervening years, but I guess that goes right along with the price increase for first-run movies. It’s something Carson’s been missing for a long time too. Maybe when the Fandango Theater opens, the Northgate Cinema will be forced to go discount because nobody will want to pay full-price to sit in those shoebox theaters.
