In most small towns across Arizona, you'll find an old downtown movie theater. Most of them are boarded up and abandoned. Not so with Yuma's old theater. The renovated and updated Historic Yuma Theatre, 254 S. Main St. (tel. 928/373-5202), the centerpiece of the Yuma Art Center, is now host to live theater productions and touring musical groups. Originally opened in 1912, the theater has been restored to its distinctive 1930s Art Deco decor.

Looking for something else to do after dark in Yuma? You can try your luck at the Paradise Casinos, 450 Quechan Dr. (tel. 888/777-4946), across the Colorado River on the Quechan Indian Reservation, or at the Cocopah Casino, 15318 S. Ave. B, Somerton (tel. 800/237-5687), 15 minutes south of Yuma.
