Your pickiness was duly noted. I didn’t even get to see what the old address was before it was corrected.

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

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.
