The mid-year theater building report in the July 22, 1950 issue of Boxoffice listed the Cumberland Amusement Company’s 750-seat Alene Theatre at Whitesburg, Kentucky as one of the 327 indoor theaters started or opened in the United State since the beginning of the year. The Alene was one of the six (out of ten total) projects in Kentucky that had already opened.

An article in the March 16, 2016 issue of The Mountain Eagle says that the theater closed in the mid-1980s. Part of the ground floor is now occupied by a florists shop, and the remainder of the building has been converted into apartments. On opening, the Alene was the fourth house for the Isaacs family’s Cumberland Amusement Company. They had theaters in Cumberland and Benham, as well as the Kentucky Theatre in Whitesburg.
