Keith-Albee gets a new lease on life...again

The Charleston Gazette has this story, but I couldn't find it in the H-D.
The Keith-Albee Theatre, which as a movie house fell victim to a new multiplex a few blocks away in downtown Huntington, will be reborn as the Keith-Albee Performing Arts Center Inc., Huntington attorney David Tyson announced Monday.

In January, the Hyman family gave the theater to the Marshall University Foundation. Now the university foundation has given the theater to the new independent nonprofit. The foundation never saw its role as anything but temporary until civic leaders were ready to take on the project, Tyson said.

It now looks like We Are...Marshall can have a proper premiere in Huntington after all.
