Link: Not saying theatre is haunted, but this is spooky
About: Is Columbian Theatre haunted?
WARNING: Small children, persons with cardiac problems should not read this. -CM
To the Editor, Columbia-Magazine.com:
I feel I can answer this one. I was very young when my Father allowed me to work at the Columbian Theatre.
The only job I didn't like was, going to get popcorn oil or ice.
They were located in the basement below the stage and screen.
I remember once, when I was setting up the popcorn machine, I had to make my usual trip down the creepy stairs to get ice.
When I was at the point of no return, the light went out, and I was in total darkness in the most scary place I had ever been in my short life. A light appeared at the top of the stairs enough for me to find my way out.
I'm not saying it is haunted, but that was a strange event in my life that I will never forget.
Mom and Dad hadn't come to work yet. I was still the only one in the building.
Jerry: That story just plain scares the bejeebers out of me just thinking about it. I'm taking everybody I can with me when I go see "Halloween," at the Columbian. Whatever that is you saw, it's spooky. It should qualify another Columbia site in "Haunted Places in Kentucky," at least, which now only lists the very common knowledge of the ghost at Horton Hall at Lindsey Wilson College in Columbia, KY section; coesn't have Harry Webb Hollow, much less the paranormality you observed in the Columbian Theatre. Hope someone will send it in. Heaven knows Sue Stivers needs all the Adair County publicity that can be generated if Columbia is ever to get its fair share of Canadian tour busses. -ED
