The Russell Theatre, a landmark individually listed on the National Register of Historic Places, has a rich history intricately intertwined with the City of Maysville.

Both residents and non-residents alike recall memorable experiences they have had with the theater, whether it be gathering there for social events or watching some of Rosemary Clooney’s enjoyable and entertaining movies.

Due to the efforts of The Russell Theatre Board of Directors, as well as many members of the local community, the drive to restore the theater to its original splendor is well under way. The lobby has been fully restored thanks to donations to the Russell Theatre Capital Campaign.

Our fundraising efforts continue as we work to restore The Russell to a fully functional movie theater and event center.

The Russell Theatre will stand as a landmark for years to come so that future generations may enjoy movies at the theater and form some of the fond memories that many of us already cherish.

The theater is open for tours during various regional events or by appointment.
