1944 ads for the Rialto, Louisville's million dollar movie palace

 January 1, 1944
I moved from Louisville to Hollywood in May, 1977.  The first night I was in town, I went to see this double bill at the newly reopened Tiffany, which was located in the heart of the Sunset Strip.  I had heard of Busby Berkeley, but I was not familiar with The Gang's All Here. It was a great and surreal way to start off my career in the movie business.  I would go to the Tiffany many times over the next several years.  As revival theaters go, it really was in a Tiffany class.  A few weeks later they showed the only surviving 3D print of Kiss Me Kate.
