Items in various issues of The American Contractor in 1917 indicate that the architect for the rebuilding of the Hippodrome Theatre was Anthony Kunz, Jr. Kunz is best known for a number of Roman Catholic churches and school buildings he designed in the greater Cincinnati area during the first half of the 20th century.

Here is a photo of the Broadway Theatre in the 1930s. Note that the old Hippodrome sign is still on the roof above the Broadway marquee.

A recent article in the Kentucky Post says that in 1936 the Miss Kentucky Beauty Contest was held there and that Charlotte Hiteman was the winner.The Hippodrome Theater lasted into the early 1960’s.
