Art Deco Appreciation

"Casino" is derived from the Latin word for "gathering place" and that's exactly what Catalina Casino is. Opened in 1929, this Art Deco masterpiece is one of the most famous attractions on the island, but you won't find any gambling in here. Instead, take a tour back in time to explore the world's largest circular ballroom or catch a flick in the original movie theater.
