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.

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.

And it should be listed as “open”.

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:

1940

1961

1962

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.

Good. I can skip the Ambien for once.

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.

That’s a prop to you, BK.

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

It doesn’t look open to me either but I think it is. This theater is supposed to be a community performing arts center. Check this website. And not to be picky but the address is 507 South Main Street.

Does not look open, does it?

Did the Alhambra ever have an organ?
