The Lyric Theatre opened on October 2, 1908 with motion pictures and vaudeville. The theatre converted to sound and began showing exploitation films. Emanuel Pedro Enriquez took on the theatre showing Spanish language films. After a 1952 fire, the theatre was refurbished and became the New Lyric Theatre in 1953 and 1954 operating as a burlesque house. Late in 1954, the theatre returned to its movie house days as a grindhouse showing sub-run discount films along with burley acts as the Nu-Lyric Theatre which appears to have closed in 1955.
