|Description:||2008 The closed and historic Huntridge Theater building might be getting a face lift (complete refurbishment and a second office floor, retail and restaurant pads, and a parking lot) and new occupants if plans to resurrect the property are approved by the Las Vegas City Council|
|Extra Note:||"Built in 1944 to entertain wartime plant workers, the Huntridge was once owned by movie star Irene Dunne. The World War ll international-style building also served the movers and shakers of the era - silver-screen stars such as Frank Sinatra, Jane Russell and Vincent Price often turned up for premieres. And current state Attorney General Frankie Sue Del Papa was once an usherette there." From Las Vegas Review Journal, Oct 20, 1994. pg. 1.c.
