The Gray Theatre was opened in July 1939. Operated into the late-1950’s by Mr. Clark who also owned the Clark Theatre next door which was opened by 1943.

Per local Glen Haney who worked at both, by 1958 to cut costs the owner made the ticket booth and concession stand in the Clark Theatre serve both theatres.
Both buildings are still standing.

The August 5th, 1939 issue of Boxoffice said that “W. R. Shafer has opened the Gray Theatre, Grayson, Ky.” Variant spellings of Shafer’s name (Schafer, Shaffer) turn up in other Boxoffice items, including one from September 23 which noted that he also operated the Strand Theatre at Irvine, Kentucky and the Trail Theatre at Morehead, Kentucky.
