At Theatres of Georgetown, seven bright screens, booming speakers, and the thrum of cooking popcorn kindle guests' imaginations for nights of cinematic excitation. In preparation for celluloid adventures, moviegoers stroll past a concession stand bustling with staffers coaxing popped corn kernels into buckets and loading cups with sips of effervescing soda in preparation for coming film fiestas. Each theater’s stadium seating facilitates clear sightlines to enjoy current spectacles in wide release or the slideshow of the projectionist's trip to Pismo Beach. A friendly, outgoing staff mans the many stations of the theater and dons costumes of their favorite characters for big film releases, parading into the streets to generate a fervor for Theatres of Georgetown's next midnight showing or themed phantasmagoria.

Nearly three decade ago, New Orleans transplant Sharon Potter became so enamored with her new hometown of Kentucky that she raised 1.2 million dollars to assemble and present her own 4,000-image slideshow, KentuckyShow!, which celebrated the state’s unique beauty, culture, and history. In 2003 Potter was approached by the Louisville Convention and Visitors Bureau about the possibility of updating the visual spectacle and rose to the challenge with the help of seasoned producer Donna Lawrence and graphic designer Julius Friedman. The updated 32-minute documentary now amazes audiences with new high-definition images of the Bluegrass State, as well as narration by Hollywood starlet Ashley Judd and director’s commentary by Kentucky’s state bird, the northern cardinal.

Today, local and out-of-state visitors—enjoying jaw-dropping views of Kentucky’s gorgeous landscape and meeting some of the commonwealth’s most memorable characters from past and present—come to the Kentucky Center for the Performing Arts to feast their eyes on KentuckyShow!. Renée S. Gordon of the Philadelphia Sun referred to the majestic video tour as “an outstanding overview of the state’s multicultural history.”
