“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.”

Grower owned – Be sure it’s sugar. The natural sweetener…15 calories per teaspoon.

Western Sugar Cooperative is made up of over 850 growers and shareholders who take pride in having a long family history in beet sugar. Some are 4th, or even 5th, generation growers who were born and raised around sugar beets. The lifestyle of hard work and long days involved in sugar beet growing has been passed down for the 100 years Western Sugar has existed. The trend of longevity extends to our employees as well where some have worked with Western Sugar for over 50 years. We aspire to build the same loyalty we have among our growers and employees with our customers by continuing to invest hard work into creating our high quality sugar.
