The Showcase Cinemas Louisville opened in September 1965. A couple of the newer theaters in town claim to have the largest screen… but I’m not so sure. Screen 1, an original screen is huge. Screen 4 and 5 feel even bigger with their mammoth-cave-size auditoriums. These three mentioned screens all have double aisles with three sections of seats. There are beautiful red curtains that seem like a mile long as they hang from the ceiling to the floor. All other screens are smaller or are former big screen auditoriums that were cut in half.
This theater is for sale and, because it is not up to code, will be torn down (the cheaper way to go) to make a clean slate for the buyer. It continued to operate until September 2004. Demolished in fall of 2010.
