“Nice old-time theater offers unusual mix of cinema and events”

The Kentucky Theater
Ranked #27 of 125 things to do in Lexington
Attraction details
Reviewed November 26, 2013

I'm a long-time Lexington resident and appreciate the Kentucky Theater for its offering of art films as well as major first-run movies, and occasionally they hold special screenings of regional films and documentaries and other special programs. It's right down town and easy to get to, with almost adjacent parking. I've been there many times and always had a pleasant experience. However, it's not a destination in and of itself: it's a movie theater already!

Very classy, very well maintained. historic theater in the heart of downtown Lexington. 1 block from Rupp Arena. The theater is beautiful inside and out. Very well preserved and maintained. All staff are very friendly. I have never had a bad experience at the Kentucky theater. The theater was closed for years and after it reopened it is just as beautiful if not more so than I ever remember it. Right on Main street in Lexington, no matter from where you are coming, its well worth the drive to visit such a beautiful piece of Lexington history.

I have gone to the Kentucky Theater since I was in high school and after the fire in the 80's I was so happy that it was rebuilt. If you want to see a beautiful theater and have a fun evening out I really recommend the Kentucky

It's small, intimate with good sound. No dislikes about the theater. Parking can be a challenge. Expect to walk at least a couple of blocks.

The ambiance after you get inside the building is great. The ceilings have beautiful stained glass. The sound was exactly how it should be: not TOO loud. Image was crystal clear. We enjoyed the whole experience.
