The Kentucky Theatre and its mighty Wurlitzer are an official Save America’s Treasures project which are owned by the city of Lexington.
Opened on October 4, 1922, the interior of this 1,100-seat theatre is an Adamesque style delight. By 1941, it was operated by the Schine Circuit. The Kentucky Theatre now has a shared lobby and conjoined projection booth with the adjacent State Theatre, which is also a ‘Cinema Treasure’.
Damaged by fire in 1987 and restored in 1989, this ornate theatre still needs an infusion of cash and more renovations to bring it back to all of its original splendor.
However, with their recent notice and restoration project well underway, the Kentucky Theatre will rise again!
