Lee Overstreet, friendly face in Kentucky Theatre's box office, dies

Lee Overstreet, the friendly, silver-haired movie lover who sold weekend matinee tickets at the Kentucky Theatre for more than a decade, died Monday from pneumonia. She was 91. Ms. Overstreet started working at the theater in 1999, having already lived a life that would have made a good movie. "She did everything," Kentucky Theatre manager Fred Mills said. "She was one of the most interesting people I ever met in my life."
