Hiland Theatre

Viewing: Photo | Street View

The Hiland Theatre was our local theatre. The only movie I can clearly remember seeing there is "Bambi" when I was about four. It was long closed by the time I was in high school in the mid-1970’s.

My late uncle was one of the gentleman hired to convert the Hiland Theater in Ft. Thomas to the office complex. He kept all the letters and numbers from the marquee. My aunt just decided to let me sell all of these collectibles for her. See my ad on eBay under the Seller name of “zeewe”, or do a search on eBay for “Vintage Marquee Letters A thru Z Antique Metal Sign”. I have multiples of all letters of the alphabet and all numbers 0 thru 9 (except the 3). These letters are great to decorate your home in “vintage chic” while owning a piece of history. Spell out the word M-O-V-I-E for your Home Theater, or E-A-T for a kitchen, or R-E-L-A-X for your rustic cabin retreat….the possibilities are endless!
Thanks to all who contributed pictures and comments to this website…it really helped my eBay ad come to life!

The photo showing the glass case with Now Showing under “The Hiland Theatre” at the top is nice then below are all of the businesses/suite numbers in that office space. I just wonder how far the residents of Fort Thomas KY have to go to see a movie now that the Hiland is gone?

Great Escapes in Wilder and the Newport Levee are both within ten minutes.

I’ve heard that a lot of the old theater still exists behind the current office space, to the point that there has been talk of reopening the Hiland as a theater again.

If the rumors are correct about a lot of the old theater still existing “behind the current office space” that is a good start to reopening the Hiland.

Patsy, there is a theatre in EDGEFIELD,S.C. where i was told by another old theatre dawg that the booth, equipment and everything is still in place. I think a dress shop of all things occupies the main theatre. So I bet a lot of old theatres still have the Booth intact.
