Welcome to the Russell Theatre! We have been an icon in downtown Maysville since 1930. Our star-studded history includes the World premiere of Rosemary Clooney's first major motion picture, "The Stars are Singing." Unfortunately, like so many other theatres, the Russell fell victim to the idea of "progress" in the 80's and the theatre was left abandoned. Luckily, a group of citizens banded together and raised money to purchase and save the theatre. A non-profit organization was formed and currently runs the theatre. Today we are still working toward restoring the theatre to its former glory, but we are open for business! We show movies, you can rent the theatre for a private event or movie, rent space on the marquee to wish someone a happy birthday or congratulate that special couple, and much more.
