Next time you’re in Las Vegas you could pay a visit to the shrine to the lost art of Burlesque.
Burlesque is defined as a humorous and provocative stage show featuring slapstick humor, comic skits, bawdy songs, striptease acts, and a scantily clad female chorus.
The Vegas-based Burlesque Hall of Fame has acquired more than 150 rare burlesque films and shorts, most created between 1946 and 1958 by the infamous exploitation film distributor “Something Weird,” that represent a milestone in the museum’s ongoing mission to preserve and share the history of burlesque.

There are plans to launch an annual burlesque film festival featuring the Hall’s collection which includes 97,000 feet of 36mm film and 15,000 feet of 16 mm film, enough to to stretch from one end of the Las Vegas “strip” to the other and back five times over.
