The address on this one should actually be 1136 South Ft. Thomas Avenue.

Pretty impressive pic of the Queen Anne, closed, but with the sign still up.

I think it’s kind of cool. Definitely a “must-see” stop on my upcoming “wild weekend in WV”. (When my wife goes to Spain on business. Does anyone party like me?)

I was passing by Ewing on 58 Alternate and noticed the rear of a large building that I thought may have been a theater. I doubled back and was wrong, but when I looked in the other direction, there was the Ewing. I didn’t know it existed because I hadn’t planned to be in Virginia (long story,) so I hadn’t researched it. And I was wrong about the Park. I did get pics of it on Saturday.

I stumbled onto a couple on my trip last weekend. The Ewing in Ewing, Virginia, and two drive-ins, the Lonesome Pine and Central, also in Virginia. I was in Middlesboro, but missed the Park. I was able to keep away from the interstates for all but the drive from home to Lexington and from Lexington to home. Pretty proud of myself. ;–)

I just stumbled onto this one, so I can imagine that more are out there. Did you get pictures or remember locations?

Looks like a nice restoration, but unfortunately they did away with the old art deco marquee.

Mike, from the looks of things, you wouldn’t have had to look hard to find something rotten in this old theater. There was a “NO TRESPASSING – VIOLATERS WILL BE PROSECUTED” sign on the door, and a lot of interior damage visible through the broken windows, so I’d say that enough vandalism has occurred to make this a serious threat.
