Friends of the Kentucky Theatre Forced to Cancel Fundraising Event with Michael Shannon

friends of ky theatre lexLEXINGTON, Ky. (4/22/13)—A fundraising event scheduled for Friday, April 26, and hosted by the Friends of the Kentucky Theatre (“Friends”) has been canceled due to an unexpected schedule change for Lexington native and Academy Award nominee Michael Shannon.

On Friday, Shannon notified the Friends of HBO’s decision to film on the original event date of April 26. Shannon said he is an ardent fan of the Kentucky Theatre and will continue to look for opportunities to support it. Friends co-chair Isabel Yates said the cancellation was beyond Shannon's control. “It's unfortunate but everyone will get an automatic full refund from Showclix," Yates said. The service charge will also be refunded.

Shannon’s new movie, Mud, will be shown at the theatre on April 26 as planned and a Friends representative will be on hand to sell seats and t-shirts.

The Friends of the Kentucky Theatre is working to raise $1.5 million for critical technology upgrades and other much-needed renovations at the landmark downtown theatre. It is a non-profit organization comprised of civic-minded community leaders and members united in the mission to preserve, renovate and enhance the Kentucky Theatre and create a fund for its continued maintenance over the coming years. The 90-year-old cinema has become a cultural fixture in downtown Lexington regularly offering diverse, community-centered programming (and the best popcorn anywhere.)

Tax-deductible donations may be made via a charitable fund established with Bluegrass Community Foundation.
