Previous Names: Carrizozo Theater, Crystal Theater
Someone was living in the Lyric Theater when I saw it last about 21 years ago. It was a small white stucco building and still had its “Lyric” sign. Carrizozo is a quiet town in central/southeast New Mexico.
The Carrizozo Theater was opened in 1916 as an Opera House. It was screening films by 1918. It was renamed Crystal Theater, and in 1938 was renamed Lyric Theater when the seating capacity was listed as 319.
The Lyric Theater was closed in 1979, after problems & protests over the screening of “The Exorcist”.
In 2010, there are plans being prepared to renovate the Lyric Theater.
