The Leola was built by Mr. Ollie Lee, hench the name Leola. The Lee family owned and operated the theatre until 1960 when they sold it to the Cygnet Corp. The Lee’s had closed the3 theatre. Cygnet reopened the Leola in 1959 under a lease with the option to buy. Cygnet was a three way partnership of Bill Cumberland, Chet McCalllum and myself.
