The Historic Commercial Center District is Excited to Announce this Historic Project. First Time Director and Producer Paula Sadler along with Commercial Center Business Assocation and Historic Society have been researching this project for several years, and now are about to begin the Interview Process.

Paula Sadler will tell the real story of Commercial Center-from its Heyday in the 1960’s to the long and contentious Relationship with Clark County, The Abuse, The Neglect, The Plan to Tear Down and use Eminent Domain as a tactic to benefit Billionaire Developers. The long-term plan to devalue the area and force the Family Businesses out. All of this is backed up by years of documentation and media coverage. Supporting Documents and government cover up. The small businesses of Commercial Center deserve to be recognized after years of surviving abuse and compensated for their losses. This true Documentary will be a biopic of how one person can make a difference, and how we must fight to stay alive in a hostile world of developers and bureaucrats. More to come.

This project’s goal is to tell the Story of Commercial Center and the Mom & Pops that made it all happen, for generations to come. To help locals remember back in the Day and relive teenage dreams of the 60’s and 70’s. Filled with Nostalgia, Las Vegas History, Music and Rock history, Celebrity and Business Advice to new and upcoming entrepreneurs in a 60-year expose of Epic proportion. Proceeds to assist with ongoing Neighborhood preservation.
