Kentucky Theatre Summer Classics Series Continues
If you have not yet made it down to the Kentucky Theatre for one of this summer’s amazing revival screenings, there are still plenty of opportunities! Upcoming films include Robert Altman’s M*A*S*H (6/22) and a double feature of Abbott and Costello flicks (6/29). All films in the series are shown at 1:30 P.M. and 7:15 P.M. on their respective dates, and each screening is $4. If you can make it to the evening screening, you will be rewarded with a “My Old Kentucky Home” organ sing-a-long and an introduction by the always entertaining Bill Widener.

Film Classes at The Carnegie Center

Classic Film at the Downtown Public Library
Wanna play a game? The Central Branch of the Lexington Public Library is launching a two day career retrospective of one of America’s most esteemed working directors. While licensing agreements prevent the Library from releasing the names of the films publicly, we can give you some hints! 1) Both films are 1970s classics, 2) The director’s highly acclaimed new film opens at the Kentucky Theatre this month, 3) Both films feature actors with strong Kentucky ties, and 4) You don’t want to miss either of them! Give up? Just swing by the downtown public library for more information. Or you can show up at 7 P.M. on Wednesday, June 29 and Thursday, June 30 to see the films for yourself!
