“The Hyart Theater was built in Lovell by Hyrum “Hy” Bischoff in 1950. It is a rare Wyoming example of a cinema from the early 1950s. The building is notable for the turquoise-colored metal lattice screen that covers a pink metal facade, as well as for its tall neon pylon sign.
Dan Bischoff (1870-1936) bought the Armada Theater in Lovell in 1913 and converted it into a cinema. His son Hy took over the business on his father’s death and operated two Armada theaters. Determining to build a new cinema, Hy toured the mountain states region looking at other cinemas. The 1949 Villa Theater in Salt Lake City particularly impressed Bischoff, and he modeled the Hyart’s lobby after the Villa’s. Bischoff designed his new theater and directed the construction. Owing to shortages of steel during the Korean War, Bischoff obtained salvaged rails from the mines at Bearcreek, Montana, and had them fashioned into steel roof trusses.
The two story building measures approximately 224 feet (68 m) deep by 70 feet (21 m) wide, facing onto Main Street. The walls are clay tile faced with brick, while the lower portion of the street facade is faced with small brick-like slabs of rhyolite from Idaho Falls, Idaho. The upper part of the street elevation is covered with pink sheet metal and screened by an elaborate diagonal lattice of turquoise metal. An office and apartment are located on the second floor, with eight windows behind the lattice. Pink neon lights outline the facade behind the lattice. A tall pylon features a neon-lighted artist’s palette and the word HYART at a right angle to the street.
The interior features the original carpeting and painted scrollwork above paneling. Originally seating 1001, the Hyart now seats 940, including a balcony with more than 200 seats. The theater features a soundproof “crying room” for parents with crying babies.”

“The Big Horn Arts Council seeks to inspire creativity and promote entertainment throughout the Big Horn Basin by providing an avenue and outlet to artists of all kinds.
We hope to inspire a passion for music, theater, writing, storytelling, film-making, painting, and other forms of creative expression both for the artist and the partaker alike.
Our intention is to work with existing entities within the communities, such as the Hyart Theater, schools, public libraries, Chamber of Commerce, and interested individuals, as well as artists from around the country, to promote the arts and provide a means to develop and express one’s talents and enjoy the talents of others. As a result, we hope to provide not only entertainment to the community, but educational opportunities and economic stimulus as well.”
