WOW I do not know who did the research on my theatre but they sure were not very good at it. This theatre was built in 1954 for Robert Dahl who was the mayor of Swift Current. It was built to be a movie theatre. It has always been an independant theatre. Famous Players never had anything to do with this theatre or any other theatre in Swift Current. In the 1970’s the Cinema Theatre, The Lyric Theatre and the Drive In were purchased by Roy Thom. He sold the Lyric Theatre after he twinned the Cinema Theatre in 1980. It later became a bar named Thumpers. He later closed the Drive In and sold the land to the East Side Church of God. The radio sound system was sold to the Drive in in kyle. He sold the theatre to me (Kathy Pratt) On April 1, 1988.
