The historic Kentucky Theater located in Lexington, KY was first opened in 1922. To this day, it’s one of the few remaining movie palaces within the United States.
In keeping with the theater’s age and old-fashioned sensibilities, each summer the Kentucky Theater hosts a Summer Classics Series that shows a different classic film each Wednesday throughout the summer.
Residents and staff from Mayfair Manor and Signature HealthCARE of Georgetown enjoyed a leisurely day at the Kentucky Theater where we listened to organ music played by Dr. John Landon before our movie began.
Dr. Landon is a retired UK professor of social work, a retired church organist, Hall of Fame recipient and volunteer extraordinaire at Mayfair Manor. So the residents from Mayfair Manor were able to get a double dose of his beautiful music.
The classic movie that was showed yesterday was Charade, featuring Audrey Hepburn, Cary Grant, and Walter Matthau. It was an entertaining, suspenseful movie with a touch of romance. The funny part was listening to our ladies swoon over Cary Grant. It was a fun little stroll down memory lane.
Thanks to all that participated in this Staycation Fun!
