Though miamiguy says the Kentucky Theatre was demolished, from his description of what happened it sounds like it was only dismantled and converted to retail use. The building at 224 W. Main Street looks like it dates from the 1910s or 1920s. Unless the auditorium was behind the building, where there is now a huge parking garage, the building it occupied still exists.

The Kentucky Theater was converted to retail space in the early ‘70s. The theater was completely demolished and the space was taken over by an ajoining department store called “The Hub,” which is now also closed.

The theater had a classic “theater” design with a stand-alone ticket booth, long up-sloping lobby and a balcony.
