Paducah’s first twin cinema, built around 1973. It was an upstairs-downstairs twin with a spiral staircase leading to the upstairs theater.

It is now a car dealership.

Attended this theater many times in the year we lived in Paducah, 1974-75. The upstairs theater was very small as I remember it, perhaps only a couple hundred seats. The main auditorium was very large with a big screen. However, I don’t think they had 70mm capability or stereophonic sound, which I found unusual for a modern theater that large. We saw a reissue of “2001: A Space Odyssey” there, and while impressive on their big screen, it was definitely not 70mm and the sound was in mono. The manager was a guy named Ron Ruggles, a real showman. I was a DJ on a local radio station (WKYX) and we often did promotions with the cinema.
