Hiland Theatre

The Hiland Theatre was opened on August 3, 1927 with Bebe Daniels in “Senorita”. The only movie I can clearly remember seeing there is "Bambi" when I was about four. It was still open in 1957, but long closed by the time I was in high school in the mid-1970’s.

I’ve heard that a lot of the old theater still exists behind the current office space, to the point that there has been talk of reopening the Hiland as a theater again.

If the rumors are correct about a lot of the old theater still existing “behind the current office space” that is a good start to reopening the Hiland.

Patsy, there is a theatre in EDGEFIELD,S.C. where i was told by another old theatre dawg that the booth, equipment and everything is still in place. I think a dress shop of all things occupies the main theatre. So I bet a lot of old theatres still have the Booth intact.

What is the current status of this theatre in KY? Will it return as a theatre or has it been demolished? Need clarification. Thank you to whomever can provide current info. If it closed in 1979, what has occurred in that space since then.

It is retail and office space with 13 tenants and 2 vacancies according to the below website for what is now called The Hiland Building.
