Was wondering if anyone had anymore info on this theater? How big it was? Is the roof about to fall in? Is it for Sale? Email me at
I was in Louisville performing at six flags for the season, and stumbled across this theater. I called the local realtor and told him I was interested in buying the theater. I was told they currently had a contract on it and was planning on tearing the theater down. I will tell you the theater went down fast after being closed. The marquee was held up by 2x4’s. You could tell the inside was in bad shape from water damage. Too bad, this was a cool theater. I haven’t been back to see if it was torn down or not.
This is a cool old theater. It is located right on the square. It is very large. Upstairs even had bathrooms for people in balcony. There is also space for apts etc.. Last time I saw the theater was about 3 years ago. It was a furniture store. Theater looked just as it did when it was built. Only the seats were removed. It has a large stage, where the owner said before shows it had a roll up screen that would reveal an automobile for advertising. Screen and stage is still there. This theater needs to be restored, It has water damage from the hotel that was destroyed by fire, that used to be next door. I think 3 years ago he wanted around $120,000 He probably would take a lot less now. Oh by the way, The lobby still boasts an original movie poster from the last movie shown there in the 70’s. I thought of buying the theater, but renovations would have been to costly.
