Kentucky Theater Closing

The Kentucky Theatre sign is nearly impossible to miss driving down Main Street in downtown Lexington.It usually lists movies playing on any given night, but the titles displayed Sunday night were the last showings, as the theatre has temporarily closed down until further notice.“We are simply said another victim of COVID-19,” Manager Fred Mills said.Mills has managed Kentucky Theatre for more than fifty years, and he said it’s overcome its share of obstacles in that time.“In 1987 there was a fire next door,” Mills said. “The theatre suffered heavy smoke damage and was rendered inoperable.”But, fast forward to 2020 and the effects of COVID-19 prove to be too much to bear, announcing Kentucky Theatre is temporarily closing.
