The Lyric Theatre launched as a 235-seat venue in 1914. In 1917, the Allred family became the theater’s third operator. At the end of what appeared to be a 20-year lease, the theatre was closed briefly and given a streamlined makeover with seating expanded relaunching as the Allred in 1935. The theatre was given a new projection system in 1939. The Allred was basically destroyed by an April 27, 1942 tornado. It was rebuilt and relaunched as a 400-seat house in November of 1942.

This theater has been closed since the middle of August, 2012, but a student is leading the charge to update its technology and get the theater reopened. View article

After years of mismanagement and neglect, the theater was not viable as an operation and was falling apart. After renovation and expansion, it became one of the top independent theaters in the state.

The Allred was divided into 2 screens either in the ‘50s or the '60s. The large, building wide screen in the rear of the building was divided into 2 screens around 2001, creating the Allred 3. A few years later, the Annex was opened. It has 2 stadium style screens. 4 of the screens are equipped with DTS. The Allred has 2 concession stands and the Annex has one concession stand.

The Allred Theater is an awesome and historic place. But thats how you see it as you drive down the road or if you go inside. But as an employee at the Allred Theater its a whole different experience. I’m am very Honored to be an employee. Gene Oliver, owner, and my boss is a very well respected man in my book! I thank him for the opportunity no privilege to be an employee here. Working at the Allred is a very rewarding experience! Not only for the Free Movies but also to see and experience how a movie theater such as the Allred is ran, is VERY rewarding. If you would like to learn or hear more about the Allred Theater feel free to contact me VIA e-mail The other three employees: Raymond Simpson, Nate Wilson, Courtney Thomas!

From the Beryl Ford Collection comes this c1940 photo of the Pryor Theatre. Architectural styling differs from that of the Allred, leading to the conclusion that these were two separate houses.
