Not listed in the 1951 FDY; one can assume it was no longer operating as a theater by that year.

This venue launched as the Pleasant Hour Theatre in 1907 in a contest won by motorman William Woolworth. The name was changed to the Lyric Theatre in 1911. The Lyric closed with “Barriers Burned Away” on March 21, 1925 at end of lease. The theatre space was converted to two retail shops. A front page story in the newspaper reported on the closing and history of the theatre.
