I managed the Varsity as well as the Capitol Theatres in Murray,from June 1956 to June 1963. The Varsity actually opened in 1939 with Kentucky as the first movie. The Varsity burned on Dec.13,1962 due to a faulty furnace. The last movie shown was OKLAHOMA. Movie operations were moved to the Capitol and operated full time until sold in 1953 to the people who operated the Murray Drive In. Bob Craven, Fulton,KY.
