Eclipse Luxury Theater faces foreclosure; owner negotiating options to save theater

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) -- A luxury theater in downtown las vegas is at risk of closing. The building that houses Eclipse Theater will face a foreclosure sale next week. An auction is planned for April 16.

Eclipse Theater is located near the intersection of 3rd Street and Gass Avenue. Court documents show financial and legal troubles for the theater over the past few years.

Eclipse Theaters opened in 2016, and while the building faces foreclosure, the theater business inside may still have a chance to be saved, which is excellent news for customers like Julie Faber.

Faber lives next to the downtown luxury movie theater that also boasts a bar and a lounge.

"They make the whole experience really nice," Faber said. "I saw it in the process of getting built. It was really exciting and I went there twice and saw a movie."

However, it's been a while since Faber has seen a movie at the theater. She says she rarely goes now. ... Read More
