LAS VEGAS, NV (KXNT) - The Huntridge Theater may be getting a new lease on life. It has a new owner, at least.

The Las Vegas City Council on Wednesday approved the sale of the theater to Las Vegas developer J Dapper. Price of the purchase: $4 million.

The deal has yet to close, but that’s hoped for in the next 6 months.

The Huntridge, at Charleston and Maryland Parkway, first opened in 1944, and has been shut down for more than a decade.

Many have formulated plans for a revitalization of the building, but the latest transaction involving Dapper is seen as the most realistic to come along in some time, as his company owns the nearby Huntridge Shopping Center.

Dapper has yet to say what his plans are for the Huntridge, but has said he doesn’t plan to tear the property down.

The Huntridge is on both the state and national registers of historic places.
