Grand opening ad posted. It was the first for General Cinema in the state.

Ever noticed so many Boston-based chains operated most of the cinemas in Lexington, Louisville, and Cincinnati? USA Cinemas, National Amusements, Hallmark, General Cinema, etc.

Uploaded photos from the Lexington Herald-Ledger of the theatre and the pylon when it was the Turfland Cinema at the Mall.

Most of the mall was razed. A portion of it is now a Home Depot.

Does anyone know the number of seats before it was twinned? Or the dimensions of the screen?
