Attraction details
Reviewed 25 November 2013

Very classy, very well maintained. historic theater in the heart of downtown Lexington. 1 block from Rupp Arena. The theater is beautiful inside and out. Very well preserved and maintained. All staff are very friendly. I have never had a bad experience at the Kentucky theater. The theater was closed for years and after it reopened it is just as beautiful if not more so than I ever remember it. Right on Main street in Lexington, no matter from where you are coming, its well worth the drive to visit such a beautiful piece of Lexington history.

I have gone to the Kentucky Theater since I was in high school and after the fire in the 80's I was so happy that it was rebuilt. If you want to see a beautiful theater and have a fun evening out I really recommend the Kentucky

It's small, intimate with good sound. No dislikes about the theater. Parking can be a challenge. Expect to walk at least a couple of blocks.

The ambiance after you get inside the building is great. The ceilings have beautiful stained glass. The sound was exactly how it should be: not TOO loud. Image was crystal clear. We enjoyed the whole experience.
