Don and Ardith Johnson built the present Lynn Theater building and opened it up for business on June 13, 1954. On October 1, 1965 they sold the Lynn to LeRoy Nyquist of Spencer Nebraska who operated it for a few years. Don Johnson then repurchased the building in 1975, did some repair and remodeling work, and reopened to the public with the first show being “Animal House”. One memory of the very first opening night on June 13th 1954 was that a full house was in attendance and outside a high wind caused a power failure, resulting in the show being finished the next evening. Since 1993 the Lynn Theater has been operated under 100 percent volunteer help. At the current time they are undergoing fundraising for a brand new digital projection system and other renovations.
