Thanks for posting that link. That is an awesome theater. Charleston had the Kearse, but they tore it down, perhaps before I moved there. I was never in either the Kearse or the K-A. I think the K-A was split up into maybe three little movie theaters then. At any rate, I never saw the inside of it. But it looks beautiful now. Huntington is a (still) beautiful city full of interesting and elegant 20th Century architecture.

I love that old theater for sure. I still remember going there to watch Karate Kid 2 when I was little and going to watch Romeo and Juliet in school. Lots of good memories there.

They are throwing a 1920s gala to raise funds for interior renovations. Also starting something called the Orpheum Society which is looking for charter members. The outside work is mostly done so now it's time to see some progress inside.

The Keith is turning 90 this year. There are plans to establish an endowment in order to try and have all renovations done in the next 10 years. That will be great to see!

The Keith is mostly for live theater now. They do occasionally do special showings of movies there and it also hosts the Spring and Fall International Film Festivals.
