All during the 1970’s I would sometimes pass the venerable Sigmond Theatre whenever I drove through Lexington on my way out to Lake Thunderbird.

This small town cinema obviously started life as a nickelodeon that had shuttered decades before I first saw it, but was still well maintained. It was a corner lot movie house situated inside the ground floor of a two story, Western-style structure with a walk up hotel on the second floor.

The Sigmond exterior was painted clean white, outlined in bright yellow. To the right of a stud lighted boxoffice were two sets of French lobby doors, with another set around the corner. Carved wood framed display cases were still intact, and it looked as if this little cinema could re-open on a moments notice, but it never did.

Due to its corner location on Main & Broadway, the Sigmond address could be listed as One Main, or One Broadway. Both would be correct.

Today Massingale Furniture Store occupies this former cinema.
