Same theater? Boxoffice, Feb. 28, 1977: “The Big Horn Theatre, Greybull, Wyo., is being dismantled. The theatre had been closed approximately six years. Prior to its closing, it had been operated by the city of Greybull on a nonprofit basis to provide a theatre for the small community. A lack of patronage assured its closing for all time.”

Boxoffice, Jan. 14, 1963: “After being closed since last spring, the Greybull Theatre has been reopened by Jack Kvale and L. E. Kunkle, a new management team.”

Boxoffice, Oct. 31, 1966: “The Big Horn Theatre, Greybull, Wyo., which has been closed for about a year, will reopen in November and will be operated by the town of Greybull”

Boxoffice, Aug. 21, 1967: “Earl Madsen, a newcomer to the business, has taken over operation of the Big Horn Theatre at Greybull, Wyo.”

The new-build Big Horn Theatre appears to have opened on December 1, 1917. It was equipped for sound and changed names to the Greybull Theatre almost 50 years later.

The Greybull appears to have closed December 26, 1971 with its final screening as “The Tale of the Dean’s Wife” staring Luanne Roberts. The Chamber of Commerce had some form of operating agreement where local plays could be staged and, in off periods, motion pictures were played. Bill Shumway’s booking of X-rated films met with the Chamber’s displeasure and they closed the movie house despite the fact that it was financially self-sustaining.
