The Galaxy Boulevard in Las Vegas, Nevada opened to the public on April 5, 2019.

Located in the newly remodeled Boulevard Mall on Maryland Parkway between Desert Inn Road and Flamingo Road, the new theater has 10 screens, including the world's first Sony Digital Cinema auditorium. Sony Digital Cinema was described in a Sony press release in February as:

Sony Digital Cinema is a new experience for PLF theaters that includes Sony's industry-leading dual laser projection system – which provides exceptional picture quality and immersion – along with powerful sound and luxury reclining seats. The auditoriums' high-contrast projection systems authentically bring filmmakers' stories and vision to life with a vibrancy that matches their original intent.

According to an article by KTNV (see link below), the Sony Digital Cinema also holds claim to the largest screen in Las Vegas:

The Sony Digital Cinema will feature Sony’s dual laser projection system, which delivers a 4K picture and Dolby ATMOS sound.

The auditorium features the largest screen in Las Vegas at 4 stories tall by 7 stories wide.

Available in one auditorium is Galaxy's "DFX" experience, which the company describes as having the combination of Dolby Atmos immersive sound system and a laser-powered Barco Digital Cinema projection system with an "ultra-high gain screen" that will presumably make 3D movies brighter. Also available in another auditorium is D-Box seating, which features a moving seat that is coordinated with on-screen action.

You will be able to find designations of each of these extra features in the notes that appear below the showtimes on this site.

Galaxy Theatres also operates the Galaxy Green Valley Luxury+ in Henderson and the Galaxy Cannery Luxury+ in North Las Vegas. It now operates 15 locations in Arizona, California, Nevada, Texas, and Washington.

The new theater is centrally located between other nearby theaters, including the Regency Tropicana Cinemas to the southeast, the Regal Boulder Station 11 to the east, the Eclipse Theaters to the north, and the Brenden Theatres & IMAX at the Palms Casino and Century Orleans 18 to the west. That should provide it with some appeal for moviegoers in the immediate area at least.
