Ford Theatre
Afton, WY
The Ford Theatre opened as the Wray Theatre in 1935. It operated until at least 1957. I don't know when it was renamed but there must have been a relationship with Courtesy Ford next door. The car dealership opened here in 1960. Before that, I believe there was a Chevrolet dealership next door. The current theatre and car dealership's facade were added around 2006. It was created by Jonathan The Bear Man. It features busts of John Wayne and Audrey Hepburn. The theatre is now used as a live performance venue. For more, see this website. [map]
