It's always a treat to see the old musicals, especially when you can visually see what Las Vegas was like back in the day, & how much it has expanded to the modern present day Las Vegas. Ann Margaret was as great as usual with her dancing.

Enjoyed Jack Carter's performance prior to the showing of the movie. As old as he is, he still has it. We laughed out load.

A fun time with dance contest, Pink Panther short, and the feature movie with Elvis. Interesting to see how Vegas looked in the early 1960s.

Totally loved seeing Viva Las Vegas on the big screen. This movie is a jewel--I felt like I was back in the early 'sixties. The musical performances by Elvis and Ann-Margaret are excellent.
The Alex Theatre (first time I was there) was the...continued

I saw this movie for Ann Margaret. And, she did not disappoint. She is gorgeous and comes out in a bikini, shorts, skirts, and leotards. The music is fine, and there are some good numbers bantered between Ann and Elvis. The acting and dancing...continued

Nice 35mm print of this classy musical. Top production values. People at the Alex Film Society are talented and dedicated.

They were tickets for special people that got married in Vegas by an Elvis impersonator and having the extras after the movie put them in heaven. They hope you will have more movies with actors coming also. There have been several over the years...continued
