Opened on October 5, 1925. Known to be in business showing first-run mainstream films in 1960 in downtown Louisville, KY. I drove by it several times during that year and have an ad for the theatre showing Walt Disney’s “Kidnapped”.

Why is it that everytime I post a link to a library photo, you feel the need to link to the same library photos? You have bad habit of doing that.

I wasn’t aware that you had posted from the Louisville library. Is that on another page?
