Yes, the Circle 25 is at R in the aerial photo. Wow, this is a very old shot because the big mobile home park at the rear of the theatre does not yet exist (but looks like it’s under construction)! Many other New Circle Rd. businesses are also absent.
Photo taken 1974.
Corrections to the info on this theatre…
Malco never owned theatres in Central Kentucky.
– Projection booth was designed for four projectors, two of them being horizontal Vista-Vision. However, the additional projectors were never installed.
– Theatre was literally across the street from Rodes' Family Drive-In.
– Present site of Brock-McVey electrical equipment and supplies.
Yes, this is in KENTUCKY. Further, the contribution of “Danny” is nearly verbatim of what I have researched and written about this theatre elsewhere… with the exception that the twinning was done in 1990 or 1991 by Chakeres Theatres and NOT the Movies 9 outfit. Danny is making an assumption on that part. FWIW, Movies 9 is owned and operated by Larry Mullins, d/b/a Bluegrass Theatres.
There is no 125 S. Main Street in Lexington, KY. Main Street runs East and West in that city.
