Update on listing for Kenworthy. The information you have in the listing is often out of date or inaccurate. The listing should read:

The Kenworthy Theater was the flagship of the Kenworthy family’s theaters holdings in Moscow, Idaho, and Pullman, Washington. In 2000, It was given by the Kenworthy family to the Kenworthy Performing Arts Centre, Inc, a community group created to oversee its restoration and operation. The Moscow Community Theater has used the Kenworthy Theater for some of its performances.

The theater both rents the venue for all performing arts, from dramatic theater, dance, concerts, lectures, and films; as well presents all types of films (independent, art, foreign, Hollywood( individually and in festivals (Native American, French, Food, Fifties).

The theater, with its magnificent marquee in downtown Moscow, is the center of performing arts in this university town and provides a gathering place for people of the area, the University of Idaho, and Washington State University.
