This paper presents an examination of the use of urban entertainment centers as a catalyst for downtown revitalization. To provide context, the examination begins with an overview of the history of downtown in America, the reasons for its decline, and past attempts at renewal and revitalization. The discussion of urban entertainment centers includes a definition of the trend and the issues surrounding their use and success or failure. Two cities, Baltimore and Denver, are presented as examples of the urban entertainment center trend in America.
