Richard J. Budd and C. Robert Budd had an idea of opening a billiard parlor in the Heilner Building in Lykens. But a friend said to take a shot at moving pictures. The Budds opened the Theatorium in 1907 raking in $7.05 in nickels on opening day. Bullish business continued in Lykens for the Budds who enlarged the Theatorium in 1913.

The Theotorium converted to talking pictures in June of 1929. On November 13, 1941, the Theatorium became the Budd Theatre. Richard Budd would give the theatre a new front and sign a year later. The theatre would eventually celebrate 60 years of operation.

The Budd has been replaced by a bank.
