The Benton Theatre was located in the small town of Benton, Kentucky. It was operating prior to 1941, and continued until at least 1950. It was a Ruffin Amusement Company theatre, a very small chain of theatres in the Blue Grass State and Tennessee. Benton did have two drive-ins operating in the late-1950’s.
