This theater is located next door to the former post office of Drift, Kentucky that I covered in this blog in the previous entry. The building was completed and the theater opened in 1940.
The theater had one screen and 150 seats.
Drift, Kentucky is located along state highway 122 between the towns of Martin and McDowell in Floyd County.
The post office at drift was first established in 1909. The origins of the name DRIFT are unclear, but many think that it was named for a local coal mine or after driftwood found in the nearby left fork of Beaver Creek.
The United States Postal Service discontinued service at the Drift Post Office on September 12, 2009.
