1931: The oldest known photograph of the (Crown) Theater, renamed Wyo Theatre in 1949. Note that side doors allowed exit from balcony; center door was for admission.

Oldest known newspaper ad (1931) for films playing at the Crown Theater. "Woman Hungry" was an early Process 3 Technicolor film production which improved color saturation- compared to Process 2.

The stars of "Too Young to Marry", Grant Withers and Loretta Young, who secretly eloped and married (she at 17) a year before the film was produced.
Their marriage was annulled (for publicity) during the film's release. Withers died of suicide in 1959. Young lived to age 87 in Los Angeles.

1936: The film playing at The Crown Theater for this VFW adudience was HIGH TENSION. Across 5th street was Crown Liquors, same ownership as cinema.

1953: Following restoration of the Crown Theater in 1949, and renaming the venue as The Wyo Theatre, this advertising in the Laramie Boomerang showed all three downtown cinemas of the day, still called "Fox" theaters (despite the 1948 "Paramount ruling").

2014-2016: before restoration and improvement in 2014 and 2015 the "beloved Wyo" was a virus-infected, unheated and totally unprofitable, unheated and poorly maintained s__ house of an obsolete- no parking- cinema; where ice for drinks was served from a machine directly exposed to atmospheric-transported asbestos in the basement. The north wall had been "repaired" with plaster (which absorbs water!). The rear state roof was shot to hell and needed total replacement.

ONE MAN- 60 years old- was asked in 2014 to "Save the Wyo. "From Cheyenne to Cody, you're said to be the only person who can do it," was the BS from the previous owner in Idaho. That was REAL bullshit. But this Laramie man's company, JAG Real Estate -did- take over the s___hole for ONE REASON: the managing member (is) also the president of a family foundation which has given $5 million to dozens of Laramie non profits for over a decade (at $300,000+ a year). Based on that gifting experience in 2014, the owner of JAG Real Estate only saw (and continues to see) that the problems of Laramie, Wyoming are forever getting worse.

By 2016, the owner of JAG Real Estate (again 60 years old) had single handedly painted the entire structure from 40 foot ladders. He's repaired the roof, installed a $9,000 heating system, paid to put a worker through asbestos school in Denver to clean the s__house up. He engineered and rebuilt the signage (working in minus 19 temperatures, below). He put $18,000 in new doors on the building. He tore out and restored the lobby. He made work areas possible and he restored the black light illumination of the mural cowboys in the auditorium.

The hate and violence began immediately.

The dumb shit who has directed the gifting of $5 million to Laramie non profits, and agreed to "Save the Wyo", was attacked and defamed on 15 web sites by a Laramie child stalking sociopath taxi "owner" (the business is actually in his girlfriend/wife's name. He uses a fake name, Matthew Brammer.

Brammer used contacts within the Laramie Boomerang to cause as much damage as possible for five years. he has been listed as a news resource on KOWB's Laramie Live for six years.

The owner of JAG Real Estate received one death threat, suffered vehicular assault (from the same person who sent the death threat...who was close friend of a Boomerang editor who was, himself, documented in a defamation conspiracy online and off ). In May of 2015, the owner of JAG Real Estate was physically attacked- along with a family celebrating a child's birthday party- in the street in front of the cinema. In 2016, he was physically attacked in his car in West Laramie by the boyfriend of the woman who had sent the death threat.

In the police report, the corrupt Laramie Police officer (as seen on video) ignored the assault report from an independent witness...and the Laramie Police framed the "owner of the Wyo Theatre" for battery (the lead cop- who has since been fired from the Laramie Police- also coached the woman in court before her hearing).

KOWB's defamation for six years (2014-2020) is actionable because they use a child stalking sociopath taxi owner as a news source in updating their organized defamation and interstate harassment . The Boomerang's 2019 defamation is actionable due to the newspaper's reference to the defamation at KOWB Laramie Live; and because of documented evidence that a civil conspiracy (involving Boomerang employees from 2014 to 2015; and with publication in 2019 being done with clear malice and intent to damage: the reputation of someone who has managed the gifting to Laramie non-profits with $5 million over more than a decade.

The Boomerang's August 30, 2019 story was carelessly published with outright (news editor) opinion- not quotes- and added false statement of facts, careless mis-quoting and reference to KOWB's five years of defamation, done in partnership with a documented child stalker.
