Hamburg Journal’s May 2022 Digital Edition, for southeast Lexington KY

Welcome to the May 2022 edition of Hamburg Journal, on stands and in mailboxes throughout southeast Lexington now. You can preview a digital version of the May print edition here.


After two long pandemic years, HJ’s Annual Summer Camp Guide is back this May — as summer camps return to central Kentucky in full force.


Woodhill Cinemas was a longtime anchor for southeast Lexington, closing in 2016. Crowds had long since drifted away as more upscale venues opened at Hamburg and Fayette Mall, while downtown maintained the classic charm of the Kentucky Theatre. With help from Kentucky’s Film Incentive, Wrigley Media was able to transform the abandoned Woodhill movie theater on Codell Drive into a state-of-the-art studio complex for production last summer. Recently, they hosted a hard-hat tour, rolling out the red carpet for a sneak peek of the developing project, with building completion expected to be early 2023.

We were sad to report in our May issue on the death of Tommy Lowery, who was a regular in the Jacobson Park morning fishing circuitfor many years.  Lowery died of a heart attack earlier this spring.


A new ice cream venue finally opens in Hamburg after a long construction wait, and DIY charcuterie nights are on the menu for the neighborhood!
