Louisville’s Cinerama Theatre Closed, Now For Sale

posted by Scottoro on September 14, 2004 at 8:27 am

LOUSIVILLE, KY — This is a splendid, chic, mid-century modern theater complex with two story lobby (upper level even has an art gallery space). Cinema 1 was built with a louvered Cinerama screen (since removed), while Cinema 2 had Panavision flat screen with unusual framing surrounding it. Both are large theatres.

Later, several more cinemas were added through the the following decades, though none are as interesting as the original two. The original building was not altered, except Cinema 2 was twinned about 25 years ago. Excellent opportunity to restore to original splendor, as much affection in the city for this building.

I’ve been told by an employee they had hoped to sell the complex prior to closing but as of yet there are no takers.

Hello – I would like to know the asking price of this theater, as my friend and I are interested in purchasing or leasing one to open up a revival theater. Any information about any theater for sale or lease would be appreciated.
Thanks –
