I added a 1900 postcard promoting an earlier Lyceum Theatre in Clovis. Also here is the Cinematour link about the Lyceum, with a little more history.

Does anyone know what became of the Rex Theatre in Clovis? The January 17, 1931, issue of The Film Daily reported that Hardwick Bros. had recently opened the new, 800-seat Rex at Clovis. Could Rex be a forgotten aka for one of the theaters theaters in Clovis that is already listed, or was it a different house that has been lost?

My memories of theatres in Clovis and Roswell in the 1950s

Thank you, Mel :–) for the wonderful photos of the renovated Lyceum. I am sure that somewhere in Clovis there are such photos from the 1950s. There were photographers in the town who specialized in making photos of the interiors and exteriors of businesses for onwers or managers to hang in their offices.

I was downtown over the weekend shooting photos for a class assignment. As I was outside the theater shooting, a lady came outside and asked if I’d like to see the inside – HECK YEAH!
I went inside with my camera, taking time to change a lens, and wish I’d grabbed my tripod.
I was expecting a run-down old movie theater, and boy was I surprised! I was FLOORED by the place, it’s beautiful! I hope I can get back in, and take more photos; this time with my tripod.

Photos are here:
