An official kick off for a one and a half million dollar fundraising campaign for a downtown Lexington landmark is scheduled this evening. A birthday celebration is planned for the Kentucky Theater as it celebrates 90 years downtown. Guests are encouraged to come wearing a costume in tribute to their favorite movie character or movie era.
A segment of the documentary ‘The Kentucky Theatre’ will be screened. Those attending will be given the opportunity to make a recording of their memories of the Kentucky Theater. A charitable fund has been established to support refurbishing. Participants at the celebration will have an opportunity to purchase seats in their name and a commemorative poster. All proceeds go toward the theater fundraising.
