The Lynn Theater opened March 5, 1941 with Bonnie Baker in “You’re the One”. It was operated by Paramount Pictures Inc. through their subsidiary Julius Gordon. On January 13, 1947 the building was gutted by a fire. At that time it was operated by East Texas Theatres. Repairs were carried out and the Lynn Theater was still in operation in 1952, but had closed by 1955.

The Paramount in Marshall is less than a block away at 318 N. Washington. The 404 N. Washington address is now an office supplies business. No way it could have been a theater originally, so the theater must have been demolished. Unless the current Paramount is an AKA Lynn at some point, with an incorrect address.

Boxoffice of February 22, 1947, said that the Lynn had been gutted by fire on January 13. Rebuilding was about to get underway. The house was being operated by East Texas Theatres.

The Lynn and the Paramount were not the same theater. An August 3, 1946, Boxoffice item said that East Texas Theatres had bought a lot in the 400 block of Washington where they intended to build a new theater when materials became available. The item said “The new theatre will be located between the Lynn and Paramount theatres, which are owned and operated by East Texas Theatres.”
