Listed in the 1945 Film Daily Yearbook as closed, seating 250, the Lynch Theatre must have reopened briefly in the early-1950’s before closing for good. It was owned in the early-1950’s by the same family who would later build (in 1954) and operate the Lynn Theatre in Lynch.

The Lynch Theatre was located in the old I.O.O.F. Hall. Any further information on the Lynch Theatre would be appreciated.

The Lynch Theater had many different uses over the years. Joe Micanek Sr. built, owned and operated a hardware store in the building from 1903-1911. Following this the Independent Order of Odd Fellows Lodge acquired the building and added and upper story to the building. Floyd Woolf operated a movie theater in this building in the silent days of motion pictures. A man by the name of Keeler played the piano. Harold Micanek remembers going to the first sound movie in Lynch in 1924. The movie was “Wings” The only sound was the planes. Later the G.V. Fleming family operated the theater until the early fifties. Many dances were then held at the building later. The I.O.O.F surrendered their charter sometime prior to 1967. Later it was home to the VFW. They then acquired a new building and it was torn down in 1977. An outdoor basketball court is now located on the spot of this building on the main street of Lynch straight across from the present day Lynn Theater built in 1954.
