Shirley Theater

Viewing: Photo | Street View

The Shirley Theater opened in 1925 and it operated through to 1950 and beyond…

It is currently being used as a church by the Covington Taberbnacle Church, but is recognizable as a former theater. Parts of the original doorways, ticket window and facade are still visible, but the marquee has been replaced by an awning.

I’ve got pictures posted on Flickr, but I haven’t had a chance to link them here yet.

I saw some of the photos on Flickr and I had a feeling that they belonged to you. Nice photos.

Thanks. I bought my Dad a book called “The Balcony Is Closed”. It’s a history of neighborhood movie theaters in Northern Kentucky written by Robert D. Webster and published by the Kenton County Historical Society. I peeked at the book when it came, then went out with my GPS this past Sunday for a mini-tour. Several of the theatres I’d passed many times over the years without even suspecting what was in their past.
