When is Augusta residents Nick and Nina Clooney's famous son George Clooney marrying human rights lawyer Amal Alamuddin?

"The answer is I have no idea. ... I don't think that they even know a date, or a location yet," Nick Clooney said during an interview earlier this week about hosting Wednesday's grand reopening of the Kentucky Theatre in downtown Lexington. The event will feature a screening of the 1958 film South Pacific, which the Clooneys saw there in 1959 on their first date.

George's engagement was revealed last month.

"I'm just glad that after these years he's finally getting out of the house," Clooney joked.

"It will be great. She's a wonderful girl, smarter than all of us put together," he said. "We're obviously very excited."
