The Keith-Albee Needs Your Help

posted by btkrefft on August 25, 2007 at 1:56 pm

HUNTINGTON, WV — The Keith-Albee Foundation, which has operated the historic Keith-Albee Theatre since August of 2006, is looking for some volunteers to help remove the former movie palace’s concession counters and other items on Tuesday, August 28th, starting at 6 PM. David Tyson, co-president of the Foundation, says to just show up. “We would like to have 100 volunteers”. Tyson recommends those interested in helping out at the Keith-Albee dress in old clothes and bring work gloves. Members of Marshall University’s rugby team have already committed to volunteering.

The work session is the latest of several sessions held over the past year to help convert the Thomas Lamb-designed movie house into a performing arts venue. The theater is located at 925 4th Avenue in Huntington.

Wish I could be there to help. I lived in Charleston in the Fifties and my parents would often drive to Huntington to the beautiful Keith-Albee Theater. I remember seeing AN AFFAIR TO REMEMBER (with Cary Grant and Deborah Kerr) when it first came out. What a beautiful movie palace. So glad you are still open.
