Here is a vintage photograph of the Grand Theatre:

The building is still there, but it was empty when the Google photo was taken. It looks like it was some kind of adult film place or store before it closed.

OMG – My grandmother played in a show, “Chin Chin,” at the Grand Theater in Rock Springs on November 23, 1919. The show had a cast of 65 people in the production. I can’t imaging how they could have fit 65 cast members in there plus customers. Is there any chance there was another Grand Theater in Rock Springs?

Hello, I am looking for information about Lillias Annie Wise who played piano at the Grand Theatre (and the Oracle) between 1915-1920 and perhaps longer. I am also interested in any information about D.T. Gilmore who first opened the original Star Theatre and managed the Oracle, Alhambra (Rex) the Lyric, and the Luna. Any help in getting more information about these people and movie theaters would be much appreciated. Thanks, Leslie

There were two Lyric Theatres. I added a page for the one at 405 N Front Street, 1912-1920. By 1920 the Paris Café had replaced the Lyric Theatre at that location.

The REX Hotel at 545 North Front Street was also the location of two theatres, the Oracle and the (other) Lyric, which operated at the same time. Both theatres were bought out by the REX Amusement company in 1924, who were in turn bought out by Thomas Berta the owner of the Rialto Theatre (located at 310 South Front Street) to stop the competition. Per the Rock Springs Historical Museum. I submitted a single page for the other Lyric & Oracle Theatre, and will post the link here when it is approved.
