Theater / Bowling Complex in Lexington Is a Go

by Bob Johnson 0

It now appears that a theater and bowling center complex in Lexington, Ky., originally announced in March 2014, will begin construction early this summer.

According to developers, the The Krikorian Premiere Theatre will include a 100-foot screen, believed to be the largest in Kentucky, to be used for movies in a format similar to IMAX.

The complex also will include laser tag and a sports bar.

The 9,000-square-foot project reportedly was delayed due to problems in getting all of the necessary leases signed.

He moved to Chicago in 2000 and spent 13 years in the Windy City, including five as Bowlers Journal’s Editor. In 1975, Johnson received the Robert E. Kennedy Award as California’s top undergraduate high school journalist. Five years earlier, on the lanes, he had shared the Bantam Division Doubles championship in the Orange County Junior Bowling Association Championships.
