The Art Deco-styled Lane Theater in Williamsburg, (Whitley County) Kentucky was opened on July 15, 1948 and closed in 1987. There is a facebook page set up to raise awareness of this beautiful theater in hopes of restoring it to be used in the community. A group known as the Williamsburg Action Team has taken an interest in this theater and here is what they say on their website about the Lane Theater and possible restoration
The Action Team obtained a $10,000 grant from the Southern and Eastern Kentucky Tourism Development Association to hire an architectural and engineering firm to do a feasibility study and draw up our initial renovation plans and overall budget of $2million dollars.
