Built in 1915, the Lyric Theatre was three stories tall under an angular roof which was topped with a flagpole. The recessed entrance was two stories high. A black horozontal sign extended from the building with'Lyric Theatre' in white lettering.

It was partially rebuilt in 1921 and re-opened as the Rialto Theatre, operating until around 1944.

The NRHP Registration Form for the Downtown Sterling Historic District says that the Lyric Theatre Building is at 107 Main Street. It was built in 1915. The building has been substantially altered and is not considered a contributing resource to the historic district.

The only identifying mark on the plain, beige building today is “LA-Z-BOY” on one of the windows, so it is probably part of the mattress shop in the building next door which shares the same paint job.
