Within 3 weeks of this closing, the first theatre I opened in Ohio also closed.

I checked the Republic Theatres website and there are no showtimes listed. I was informed that the theatre had closed. It is the first theatre that I have opened that has closed.

There was also AMC’s Westland 4 Theatres located a few miles south of the Dixie Dozen on Dixie Highway.

My first movie date was with a girl named Bridgitt at the Alpha one. We saw “Top Secret” and after all these years we still communicate. I did catch “Babe” at the Dixie Dozen, though not with Bridgitt.

This complex occupies the former retail space of Kaufmann-Strauss Department store in Dixie Manor Shopping Center, located in the Southwest section of Louisville. Kaufmann’s was built in the late 1950s in a stylish International style with clean, smooth lines inside and out. Later, it became an Ayre’s Department store before transitioning to other retail leasing before converted to cinemas. The exterior of the building is still intact, though it is now much less classy in appearance. This southwest sector of Louisville was always underserved by cinemas. Two drive-ins existed, the Dixie Drive-In, now long occupied by a K-Mart store, and the Valley Drive-in, in the far southern quadrant of the county, closed since the 1970s. In the late 1960s, one indoor screen was built, coincidentally at the K-Mart center, called the Alpha One Cinema. In subsequent years two more screens were added, but it has long since closed and converted to retail space. It was a low-end, small, suburban cinema complex, part of a city-wide chain of other Alphas, which have long since closed as well.
