If anyone’s interested, the architect of the original building was W. S. Arrasmith, a Louisville architect who designed many Art Deco buildings, including 50+ Greyhound Bus Terminals. (a great book if you’re interested is The Streamlined Era Greyhound Terminal by Frank E. Wrenick). Thanks for the great info – always learn a lot on Cinema Treasures!

The only remaining part of this theater is the marquee and the vertical OHIO. The signs rest on a very small storefront, and the building is small enough to serve as an island for Louisville’s free downtown trolley service. The south side of the building has a trompe d'oeil marquee painted on it, hawking ‘Intolerance’ by D.W. Griffith, a native Louisvillian.

looks like most of the building has been demolished and just part of the facade remains
