“One of America's Restored Grand Theatres”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2013

Huntington is nestled between two beautiful ridges on the mighty Ohio River. The majestic Keith-Albee Theatre is now owned by prestigious Marshall University. Designed by Thomas Lamb prior to the Great Depression and sister theatre to the now restored Boston Opera House is one of America's great performing arts venues. Huntington has a wonderful arts museum, an elaborate park system, and many grand homes in the Ritter Park area of town. Huntington is the largest bitumonous coal port in the world and home to many famous actors, actresses, sports figures and politicians. The Keith-Albee Theatre is purported to hold many secrets and has hosted many famous stars and events since its completion. I would recommend staying at either the Holiday Inn Civic Center or the Pullman Hotel both of which are in walking distance of many charming places in downtown Huntington. PS The people of Huntington are most helpful!

“Shabby Chic, but Renovation Underway”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2013

Love it! Old downtown vaudeville theater undergoing a face lift. Interior looks like an Italian villa with lights in the ceiling like stars. Traveling shows and the occasional Huntington Symphony Orchestra concert.
