My family and I frequently visit this theater. It is always clean and efficient and the kids absolutely love it. Workers are quite friendly. Concession food is quite pricey, although always very tasty.

I'm told this historic theatre was recently renovated. It's beautiful! Intricate, artistic woodwork on the walls & ceiling (& stained glass). Cushy, comfortable, wide base & back chairs. Make this a stop on your trip to Lexington!
