I grew up in La Marque and my dad had a used car business just a few blocks from the Lamar Theater. The memories I have of the Lamar was the price (9 cents for kids and 25 cents for adults). I remember seeing the Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis comedies (Scared Stiff comes to mind) there as well as Abbott and Costello. They also ran serials there on Saturday morning. Stuff like “Superman”.

Another thing is that they has an upstairs balcony for “colored”

Long time between comments. I ran the projectors at the Lamar Theatre in the mid 50s. Got a job with Monsanto thru the theatre manager, and, best of all, I met my wife who sold tickets there.

The owner also had a drive-in theatre nearby, but I cannot remember the name.
