The Legion Theatre was housed in the American Legion Post 26 building and was in operation as early as 1936. The theatre portion seat 1,033. It was operated by Malco Theatres until 1961 when the lease was not renewed. A theatre this size became unprofitable. The building is still active with the AL Post 26.

If you have additional information on the Legion Theatre it would be appreciated.

The NRHP registration form for the Mayfield Downtown Commercial District says that the Legion Theatre was built in 1930. The lower level contained meeting rooms, the second level had a basketball court with audience gallery, and the theater, which had a balcony, was on the top level. The theater was converted into a bowling alley in the 1960s.

American Legion Post 26 has a Restoration Committee that has a web site. There is a photo gallery, but I couldn’t get it to work with any of my browsers.
