I love old theaters and was happy to see that this one has been very well preserved and maintained and is still operating. But I was really expecting to see something much more, well, GRAND!

We are blessed to have a niece and nephew that are involved in the theatre's operation. It is a magnificient building in downtown Frankfort that has history as well as a future. My niece's son keeps talking about the time Jack Hannah came to town.

The theater was restored from a grass roots group of local citizens intent upon restoring this facility which once featured vaudeville shows. If you are fortunate enough to be in Frankfort while...

My family and I have seen many shows at this venue. There is not a bad seat in the place, in walking distance to downtown eateries, and a place that has added a lot of value to Frankfort. The quality of shows and movies are excellent, and bring a worldly flair to small Frankfort, KY. I have been completely blown... More

Prices for events are... More
