Nick and Nina Clooney to host Kentucky Theatre re-opening

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - After two months of renovation, the Kentucky Theatre will be hosting a re-opening celebration on May 21.

Nick and Nina Clooney will be hosting the event, which will feature a free movie screening and popcorn.

For the Clooneys, it's somewhat sentimental--their first date was at the Kentucky Theatre to see the movie South Pacific. For the celebration, they were asked to select the film for the evening--and once again, they chose to see South Pacific.

In October 2012, groups raised money for improvements to the historic theatre. Those improvements include updated projection and sound technology, a special hearing loop for the hearing impaired, new carpet and seating, fresh paint, lighting and electrical upgrades. In addition,l the marquee and concession stand are being renovated.

The celebration starts at 7 p.m., with the doors opening at 6 p.m. Seating will be first come, first serve. For more information on tickets, you can visit the Kentucky Theatre's website,
