  • The Kentucky Theatre is a Lexington mainstay. It often plays "art films" that don't show elsewhere in town, and it seems to curate its selections to include more thought- provoking movies. My favorite part, though, is that it hosts exhibits from area artists, and more than one I've been able to meet a talented exhibitor and acquire a wonderful new piece. All together, the Kentucky Theatre is a cultural icon, and I'm happy that our city seems to value the contribution it offers to the community.
  • It's a historical landmark. The theaters are beautiful. The tickets and concessions were very affordable. I've gone to different things here. I know my daughter has come to their monthly Rocky Horror before. It's just a neat place.
