The pride of developer American Nevada Company, Green Valley Town Center boasted a United Artists Theater, Barley’s brewery and casino, and Smith’s when it opened in the mid-’90s. Losing one leg of the three-legged stool when the theater closed in 2005, the center teetered. Starbucks, a furniture store and other retailers shuttered, and the Great Recession mocked plans for a hotel. But a $2 million investment by Galaxy Theatre for a high-end movie-going experience, including beer and wine sales, eight large screens, all-digital projection, stadium seating and reclining leather chairs, has attracted robust crowds since March. Dipsticks Desert Pops Bakery, MELD women’s apparel and Spa 99 have invigorated the center, and, according to an ANC official, look soon for youth-oriented amusement, personal-service salons and more restaurants to propel the momentum.
