Thank you Danny Ruiz!


While the Russell Theatre has been closed for the winter, a lot has been going on. Danny Ruiz, owner of Maysville Painting Company and dear friend of the Russell Theatre, has once again donated his time and expertise to help us at the Russell Theatre. Above is a photo of the auditorium floor that Danny has cleaned, patched, and painted. He offers free estimates on interior, exterior, residential, and commercial jobs.

Help restore the Russell

...and all the memories left behind

the heart of downtown



The Russell has long been known as the heart of downtown Maysville. This was the first job for so many people, where they went on their first date, and had their first kiss. This is where memories were made, memories that have lasted a lifetime-and beyond. The ticket stubs in the photo above represent many of those memories and we want to see many more memories made here. To help with the restoration efforts click here to donate.


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. You can read more about our story here.

We are doing it again!!! Don't miss the 3rd annual Rocky Horror Picture Show at the Russell Theatre featuring Dawn Marie's Misfit Toys shadowcast. All of the performers come to Maysville on their own dime to help the Russell Theatre so show them we appreciate their dedication by making 2017 their biggest show ever!
