This theater sits on Confederate Square. A local told me it was named for the owner, a Mr. Lynn.
The facade is very interesting, almost a Bauhaus style. The Lynn Theatre opened in 1947. The vertical portion of the marquee is especially cool, with a pattern of stars and a pole on top with a light on it (which seems to be a popular feature for Texas theaters).
The Lynn Theatre was reopened on June 24, 2009 as a movie theatre, but was closed in April 2010. The building was sold in September 2011, and reopened as a live theatre March 15, 2012. First-run films were added to the programming from November 2012. It was closed on June 14, 2020 with Harrison Ford in “Raiders of the Lost Ark”. By 2021 the theatre had been abandoned.
