The Knox Theater in a previous incarnation...

Opened in the early-1900’s as the Towers Theatre, it retained that name until at least 1950. The Knox Theatre was open and showing sub-run double features as of April 17, 1960, according to the Louisville Courier-Journal of that date. It was closed in the early-1960’s, and is currently a business space.

My Mom decided it was a good idea to take me there to see “The Fly”. It was actually a terrible idea. I was scared to death.

The AKA should be Towers Theatre, rather than Tower Theatre. The book Old Louisville, by David Dominé and Ronald Lew Harris, has a 1926 photo showing the plural name on the vertical sign.
