I wouldn’t do this for just anyone, but I don’t want you to stay awake all night wondering. The former address was 501.

Good. I can skip the Ambien for once.

The “possibly from the 70s” photo was taken in November 2003 (by yours truly; thank you so much,, for asking permission), before the renovations began.

I don’t know where the “possibly from the 70s” came from. The link to that photo on the Hopkinsville Nostalgia website reads “Alhambra before the Restoration 1981?”. Whats a few decades here or there.

Speaking of that website, here are a few ads that are posted there:

The Saturday-Sunday, March 14-15, 2008 edition of the Kentucky New Era featured an article about Hopkinsville’s Alhambra Theatre, which had recently re-opened following nine months of renovations. The article can be seen online at Google News.

Here is another article about the Alhambra, from the October 7, 1992, issue of the Kentucky New Era. It features a photo of the auditorium, though the scan is a bit muddy.
