History

The Performing Arts Center or the Aladdin Theatre for the Performing Arts opened as a 7,500 seat theater for the Aladdin Las Vegas as a part of the 1976 renovations. [ cite web |url= http://www.a2zlasvegas.com/hotels/history/h-aladdin.html |title= Aladdin |accessdate=2007-06-22 |format= |work= ]

The theater was the only part of the complex retained during the 1996 reconstruction.

The Aladdin and the theater gained international attention on July 18, 2004 when Linda Ronstadt was escorted off the property after expressing support for documentary filmmaker Michael Moore during a concert performance.
