Airdome Theatre

There appear to have been four airdomes in Downtown Las Vegas. The first was back in the early-1910’s. The second was a 1,000-seat structure - this one - was located where the El Portal Theatre took its place. It was also called the Majestic Garden Airdome in the early-1920’s. The third was all the El Patio Airdome and the Airdome Follies Theatre at 1st Street and Carson Street and, like this location, served as a warm weather alternative to the ventilation-challenged Majestic Theatre. And the fourth Airdome was the only one without a movie operation which was named the Elkdome Theatre.

The Airdome Theatre launched March 31, 1916 and operated as a summer movie destination in the pre-air condition era of silent film exhibition. The Airdome Theatre had two Powers 6-B projectors and was a popular destination for film fans. Ernie Cragin and William Pike appear to have established the Airdome until deciding to replace it with the El Portal Theatre in 1928.
