Classic movies could soon be playing at the Alhambra Theater in downtown Hopkinsville, as Christian Fiscal Court helped the Pennyroyal Arts Council take another step in that direction.
Court unanimously approved a letter of consent that will allow the Arts Council to combine forces with the City of Hopkinsville to bring the thirty thousand dollar projector to the facility.
The Arts Council will raise 15 thousand dollars and the city will match that amount. Christian County Attorney Mike Foster says the concept has been popular in most places where it’s been tried.
Foster says the county had to sign the agreement only because the theater is owned by Christian County Government.
The Arts Council will launch a fundraising effort for the project next month.
In other action, Fiscal Court approved a change order regarding heating and air improvements at the jail, though it came with much discussion and a “no” vote from Magistrate Jim Fleming. Court also approved allocating $850 for a software upgrade to the E-911 GPS system.
Magistrates Edwin Long and Tom Jones were absent from the meeting.
