Circa 1950, large yellow roof on left is possibly the Liberty Theater.

Liberty Theater in Pikeville, Kentucky was a one screen theater on Main Street, which opened in the 1930’s with 600 seats. By 1941 it was operated by the Schine Circuit.

Salene Thomas ran the Liberty Theater when I worked there. He was my Dad…We had the best popcorn in town, in the 1960’s.

Teresa, yes please add lots more info, photos, an address and what’s on the theater site now!

Here’s some stuff I came up with, I don’t know how true it is, but it is something?

Open from ABOUT 1930-1955?


1940 Schine Circuit Incorporated?

1950 Darnell Theaters Incorporated?

1955 Elmart Incorporate?

My great-grandfather owned this theater in the 1930s while his sons ran the theater. Is this theater still standing? What was it’s location on Main Street in Pikeville? TIA!

Circa 1950 photo added, large yellow roof on the left is possibly the Liberty Theater. Approximately 179 Main Street, which is the today the site of the Pike County Judicial Center. Would need a local to confirm location.
