The Lyric was probably in operation by 1921, as it is advertised in the January 12, 1922 issue of the Whitesville News.

A comment on this Facebook page says that the Lyric Theatre had been in the building that,in 1960, became a combination cattle auction/restaurant called the Cow Palace. The building had originally been the Chase Garage, seen in a photo on this web page. The photo must date from before the theater opened. It was a large structure, and the theater probably only occupied part of it.

After the Cow Palace closed, the building was demolished. It is now the site of a facility occupied by the Independence Emergency Squad, an ambulance service, at 508 Main Street. That might not have been the theater’s exact address, but it was probably close to it.
