The lights flash and the music blare as people gather around card tables, slot machines and other games of chance. Champagne glasses clink and the sense of excitement is palpable. No one knows when their luck will change, but the buzz is there. That’s what makes casinos so appealing, and it’s why some gamblers are drawn to them in large numbers, even if they know they’re going to lose.
A casino’s goal is to make money, which means encouraging people to keep gambling. But it also needs to make sure the people who play there are having fun. That’s why the design of a casino is so important. There are many things to consider, including the acoustic, lighting and visual (AVL) system.
Unlike other movies that glorify Las Vegas with opulence and neon signs, Casino is a serious movie about organized crime, corruption and the dangers of greed. But it’s also a film that keeps the audience on the edge of their seat, with tense performances from Robert De Niro and Sharon Stone. Even a viewer who doesn’t care for the mafia should be able to appreciate the story of how the mob lost control of a city that was minting money by the billions. Plus, it’s just an epic thriller that doesn’t lag at any point and delivers a satisfying ending. Probably the best in movie history. And it’s based on true events. Who could ask for more?
