Information for this tour was contributed by Konrad Schiecke & Melody Anderson.

This theatre was built in a multi-use building which was constructed in 1881. The theatre opened in 1928. It closed in 1969 due to low attendance and illness in the owners family. In 1987 it was reopened briefly by the Bodwell family. It was sold in the late 1990's to Barry Sprout, who ran it until the year 2000. It is now closed.

The City of Wyoming has since purchased the theater and the Wyoming History and Arts Association has plans of restoration.
