On January 18, 1942, Louisville's one and only newsreel theater was announced.  It opened in April 17, 1942 and would continue operating as such until after the war at which time it specialized in art and foreign films. 


 

The next day, April 18, 1942, this accompanying article appeared in The Courier-Journal.

A Scoop ad from the second day of its operation, April 18, 1942. I've included some more ads in the post for the 1945 ads for the Rialto.
