Historic theater, then and now
Hopkinsville's historic Alhambra Theater has recently been renovated. Most of the changes were made in the lobby, as I understand it. The restrooms were enlarged, so the ticket window had to be eliminated. It was a case of modern needs overruling perfect preservation.
In the Christian County Courthouse, I photographed an old photograph (image below) that shows the Alhambra about 50 years ago. I would guess that this photo is from about 1960. (Note the air conditioner in the second story window.)
The Christian County courthouse stands next door to the Alhambra. It's the building that is visible to the left of the theater in the image at the top of this post.
In the old photo, a crowd of people are waiting to enter the courthouse for some reason. The Alhambra theater, as it was then, is shown in the background. The man in military uniform was probably a soldier from Fort Campbell.
