Technology has been swiftly changing and growing for quite some time now, changing the way we keep informed, consume entertainment and frankly live our lives. It’s amazing to look back at movies and how far that they have come since the early 1900s when these films were produced without sound, or simply black and white. Since then we’ve quite literally seen a spectrum of inventive ways filmmakers bring stories to life, now with green screens and CG and things so realistic you jump from your seat and sound so pristine that you question if you’re physically present.
With all the color and sound that we have demanding attention on the silver screen, one may raise an eyebrow if you saw the listings for a “silent movie” experience today. But as mentioned, technology is constantly changing, and so is the way we harness its possibilities. The traditional outdoor movie experience has been reinvented with an individualized listening experience for each moviegoer, under the stars this summer with Sunset Cinema.
The Green, our outdoor event lawn, doubles as a theater this June featuring films for all ages. Each person will receive a set of headphones with self-controlled volume that will allow them and only them to hear the featured movie, silence to those surrounding them, and direct their attention to the large screen that will be set up with a perfect view for everyone. This will change your perception of silent movies forever, oh, and it’s free!
Join in for the festivities that compliment that night’s feature film at 6 p.m. before the movie screens at dusk.
June 9: Beauty and the Beast – featuring “before the last petal falls” timed challenges
June 16: Grease-featuring a classic dance off
June 23: SING- featuring free karaoke

Feel free to bring the family, a picnic basket, or grab one on The Green , even a drink at the bar for a fusion of classic fun and budding technology with Sunset Cinema, Fridays in June, beginning June 9th.

We like to call this short stunt of weather springtime. You know the rarity of this phenomena and that it is your job to make the most of this fleeting moment. We have a few suggestions.

As a local, you know your city, so I guess the only choice left is where to start first?
You don’t have to look far to find a study stating that a glass of wine now and then can be good for your health. With that being said many more people who may have been reluctant to try wine have come around to simply try and enjoy its… health benefits. With the numbers growing, you’re bound to meet many different types of groups of oenophiles, especially this Wednesday and many to follow into June, such as….
The Color Blind
Reds, whites, pink- color doesn’t matter and they’re game to try any type that you may have on you from Pinot Noir to Rosé. They live for wine tastings to grow their ever expanding palettes and learning from fellow goers, especially the…
They are the professors of the wine world. They take their hobby, no, lifestyle very seriously and can break down the complete science of what you are sipping, not to mention what it pairs well with and mention the words body, notes and aroma more than the average wine tasting participant. There is no over swirling going on here.
The graduates of color blind crowd, without losing the curiosity of trying something new and more in the educated wheelhouse of already knowing what they enjoy. They have preferences and know why, but love being adventurous from time to time, hence why ordering a flight is their go-to so they never miss out on something but just choosing one.
This specific type is usually already part of a preexisting group of friends, co-works or family members that have dubbed the consumption of wine as their hobby as a way to enjoy each other’s company out of the everyday tasks they usual get to spend together or a way to get together when it seems difficult to do regularly. They are very similar to a “brunch crew”, but for those looking to slip away later in the evening or after work instead of morning to midmorning to be with friends.
Which group do you fall into or which ones are we missing?
All groups, individuals, wine lovers or those looking to try something new are invited to join us out on The Green every Wednesday for Wine Down Wednesday with free wine. Yes, free wine!

There is a lot to think about when it comes to traveling and we know you have a lot of questions before you even reach your destination. Here are a few more common questions we receive for those making Silverton Casino their travel destination.
Are dogs allowed in the Casino or Hotel?
We have many guests curious if Fido is allowed to stay with them in the hotel during their visit, but in fact our hotel is currently, strictly human. But Fido is more than welcome to take a stroll through Bass Pro Shops with you, you may even want to pick him up one of the awesome, durable chew toys they have!
What is a resort fee and do you have one?
A resort fee is a daily supplemented charge that is not included in the initial booking cost. These supplementary fees allow access to the many features on a property. Our hotel does have a resort fee, which is currently at $16.99, generously below the average of $24.38, and well below the likes of $40 resort fees that you will find on The Strip. Resort fees are very common and almost all Las Vegas hotels and resorts have them.
Is there anything to do for families on property?
Yes! In fact our aquarium was named “Best Free Attraction in Las Vegas” and is home to hundreds of fish, stingrays, sharks and even mermaids. Thursday through Sunday you can catch live, interactive mermaid shows for kids of all ages, or kids at heart. Also, you can catch stingray feedings twice a day, at 1:30 p.m. and 4:30 p.m. with the chance to ask questions and learn more from our aquarists live from the tank!
How much does it cost to park?
Free! It is free to park in the parking garage or you can also enjoy complimentary valet. We’re not jumping on the paid parking bandwagon.
If you have any more questions, we encourage you to reach out to us through any of our social media outlets so we can help you make the most of your stay!
