Coming Attraction: Las Vegas’ Krave Massive To Open LGBT Movie Theater

krave massive

When Krave Massive opens this spring in Las Vegas, owner Kelly Murphy says it’ll be the largest full-time gay club in the world. But it won’t just be a place to get your groove on—the sprawling Fremont Street attraction will also be home to a movie theater showing LGBT-centric flicks on two screens.

Murphy, who also brought drag-queen bowling to Sin City, has teamed up with Guest House Films co-founders Rob Williams and Rodney Johnson on The Guest House Theaters at Krave Massive, as the cineplex will be known.

Williams and Johnson say they’re planning on scheduling new fare, retrospectives, special screenings and premieres, and will invite filmmakers and actors to select shows: “This is an exciting opportunity not only for Las Vegas moviegoers to see a wide variety of LGBT films on the big screen, but also for filmmakers to secure a theatrical screening for their work and reach a new audience outside of the traditional film festival circuit,” doctors wifeexplains Williams. “We know how hard it can be to get a gay-themed movie into a ‘mainstream’ theater, so we look forward to working with Krave Massive to help both new and established filmmakers gain exposure.”

While the roster of films hasn’t been announced, co-sponsor Guest House Films has produced numerous LGBT flicks, including Long-Term RelationshipMake the Yuletide Gay,The Men Next Door and The Doctor’s Wife (right), about a gay MD who moves to rural Australia with his partner.

    Hope they can get enough gays to fill this place up. I guess there are always fag-hags, too.

    yaoming, gays aren’t the only ones who will come. Krave did very well on the strip with straights attending too. The owners of Krave feels so confident they will do well they’ver even opened one in the Rio.

    I was just in Vegas two weeks ago and went to look at this place since it was to open on New Year’s Weekend. The place is far from ready to open. Hopefully it will be ready by the next time I get to Vegas.

    Its always been my experience with pretty much anything gay themed that they charge way to much for way to little. That will be a problem in Vegas because they main stream casinos are already going very gay friendly and normally have a lot more to offer than these gay places.

    Would never go since most LGBT-themed movies are absolute, unquestionable fucking garbage.

    You set up a Peter Greenway festival and I’ll give you my money.

    Greenaway, not Greenway.

    Take my art school cred away.
