This is in Cumberland KY. J.E. Issac, who would come to own several theaters in this area, built this complex in 1937, primarily as “Isaac’s New Theatre”, modern and comfortable, for 1937. The coal was depleting fast in that year, the Depression was slowly beginning to ease a little and people needed some distraction.
It’s a shame that I’m stupid and didn’t get a good shot of the whole building, but, well, there it is.
In the middle, with the ticket booth still there, is occupied by “Lillian’s Novo Center”.
