The Leeds Theatre is a single-screen movie theater in downtown Winchester, Kentucky. One of Winchester's first movie houses, the theater was purchased by S.D. Lee, president of the Winchester Amusement Company on May 12, 1925 and opened with The Crowded Hour starring BeBe Daniels. It was later named in a contest after its first owner S.D Lee, by rearranging the letters of his name.The theater declined in both attendance and general upkeep, closing its doors in 1986.Shortly after, the Winchester Council for the Arts restored the theater to its original appearance. The theater reopened in 1990 as the "Leeds Center for the Arts" with new equipment, a larger stage, and the original paint color scheme of 1925. The theater remains one of Clark County's timeless treasures today, showing live music, films, and various musical and drama performances.
