Rex Kinnie also owned the Lyon Theater in south Lyon in the 1950s. He drove our school bus (for South Lyon Schools) and gave us the upcoming film information if we asked. We attended movies at the Lyon weekly as a family or the Lee in Whitmore Lake.

I used to go to the lee when i was a kid, in the mid 50''s , my dad would take the whole family at least once a week, during the summer. it was the only air-conditioned place in town. it showed first run movies,many times before they showed in detroit. they changed features twice a week. sunday and wednesday.

the cost was 25 cents for adults and a dime for kids under 12. they tore it down some years ago. now there is a resturant with a bowling ally behind it, on that site.

it was right on the main street. old us 23 now , but at that time , the only us 23.

the freeway wasnt built yet.

i wish it was still there.

I am very curious about this theater, I have been through that area many times and the location does not reveal itself. After visiting thousands of existing and former movie houses, generally I can spot them. Not so here. I will keep looking.
