At night, the entrance to Circus Circus on the north end of the Las Vegas Strip is reminiscent of an earlier era. The hotel and casino opened in October of 1968. It served as a backdrop for a portion of the 1971 James Bond film, Diamonds are Forever. It is now owned by Phil Ruffin, who also owns Treasure Island, which we covered the other day [see here].
Circus Circus’s new next-door neighbor is the soon to be open Resorts World. Some things do change on Las Vegas Boulevard, but Circus’s Circus’s Lucky the Clown is still there to greet you every night.
