Linn Creek Theatre

Linn Creek, MO

Unfavorite No one has favorited this theater yet

An ad in the REVEILLE newspaper announces the opening of the Linn Creek Theatre on Friday, March 2, 1923, with Buford Laughlin as the proprietor. The opening features were the 5-reel feature “Kingman’s Roost” and a 1-reel comedy. Advertisements continue through May 1923, and then disappear. At the end of the year, Buford Laughlin is listed as propriator of the Homelite Electric Plant, so apparently the theater was very short lived.

No address is given for the theater, but whatever building it was in was torn down, along with rest of the town of Linn Creek, to make way for the Lake of the Ozarks, and was flooded in 1931. The site of the whole town is now at the bottom of the lake.
