The photo of the Lyric Theater was also known as the Oyster Bay Theater, not the Pine Hollow Theater where BMW of Oyster Bay is now. The building in the photo of the Lyric Theater/Oyster Bay Theater currently is an annex to the Oyster Bay Town Hall.
I just started working at BMW of Oyster Bay yesterday at 145 Pine Hollow Rd. It was the Pine Hollow Movie Theatre. The Oyster Bay Movie Theatre was down town near Town Hall. Coincidentally,the service manager, Steve, and I were reminiscing about the changes in Oyster Bay just today. He has been working at BMW of Oyster Bay for I believe 26 years, and I was born, raised and still live in Oyster Bay, 48 years later. The old Carvel, Foodtown, Lizza Sand Pits, Rumrunners and of course Pine Hollow Theatre were mentioned. He told me today that in the current building you can see where the stage was, the projection room window is still intact, and one of the owners has the phone from the lobby in his basement at home. I will see what else I can find out.
