Wyo Theater

The Crown Theater in Laramie, Wyoming was built around 1925. It operated as the Crown Theater until 1950 when its new owner changed the name to the Wyo Theater.

At that same time, the theater was given an Art Deco style remodel to the plans of architect Charles D. Strong and had 803 seats. The Wyo Theater was closed in 2017.

My husband and I managed this theater (him in the late 80’s) myself in the early 90’s. This theater is part of the reason we now own/operate The Historic State Theatre…such found memory’s. We had to repaint the sidewalk almost every year :)

Closed as a cinema in 2017.

Recent photo of the theater added in the Photo section. Any idea what’s behind the cryptic message on the marquee?

Here’s a 2016 local news story about the closing. Here’s an iMDB bio page for the owner.

Boarded up and looking sad.

The old owner sounds like a real ‘character’. That IMDB profile is incredibly cringy. He also ruined the beautiful original doors and replaced them with cheap garbage.

This page says that the theater was donated to the Laramie Main Street organization in 2019. There were hopes for revitalization but the page shows no updates since 2020.
