Happy 98th Birthday OHMANN THEATER – Lyons NY

Congratulations to BOB OHMANN and the Staff at the Ohmann Theater in Lyons, NY on the celebration this weekend of their 98th Birthday!  In celebration, the Ohmann will screen Gone With the Wind all weekend long, a film that many locals recall seeing at the theater when it first came out in 1939.

The theater opened on December 6, 1915 with the silent movie Vanity Fair.  It has remained in the Ohmann Family almost exclusively for its entire life with a brief exception in the 1980s.  Bob Ohmann was THS’s Honorary Member of the Year in 2006 for his successful restoration and reopening of his grandfather’s theater.
