Movie theater in the works

If all goes according to plan, Las Vegas will once again have a movie theater by Thanksgiving.

Work has already begun on converting the 131-year-old Victorian storefront at 146 Bridge St. into a 50-seat movie theater with platform seating. Elmo Baca, the Las Vegas native who has taken on the project, plans to call the new cinema Indigo Theater. He said his theater will screen current movies.
