The New Lyric Theatre opened November 11, 1927 with John Gilbert in “The Big Parade”. It continued with the Lyric name into the early-1940’s. It was then renamed Rodeo Theatre specializing in screening Westerns.

The building still stands and is currently used as a restaurant named Mad Batter Food & Film, which screens free movies.

When the Ritz Theatre opened in 1942, the Lyric was renamed the Rodeo Theatre and operated until about 1948 with a policy of western movies.
