Virginia Theater, 1952. Photo via the Fiftiesville Facebook page.

The Virginia Theater was located on Main Street in Hazard, Kentucky. I don’t have the opening date but this theater was operating by 1922 and lasted to at least the early-1960’s.

I found a few photos of this theater. The caption under one of them reads “Fire Fighters battle blaze that gutted the Virginia Theatre July 31, 1963”. Not sure if that was the end of this theater or if it was rebuilt. Click the link below for a photo of the Virginia Theater taken around 1952.

Here is an oddly angled photo from 1937 which shows the original marquee, as seen in the the 1942 photo above:

Found a newspaper article from 1922 in the Louisville newspaper that states “See Radio in Moving Pictures. It’s a Treat Don’t Miss It.” So based on this, we know the theater opened prior to 1922.
