I only kew the Lyric in its final years as an inner city “grind house”. Triple features for a 15 to 45-cent admission depending on the time of day, and ten cent hot dogs and five cent (alleged) lemonade at the concession stand.
The Lyric was demolished in the early Sixties and the property was used to build a printing plant for the Newark Evening News, which ironacally folded a very few years later.
The Lyric was a great place to unwind after a day of shopping at Bambergers or Kresge’s or Klein’s, and a fast and cheap lunch at Grant’s next door or the Novelty Bar across the street. The Lyric would do capacity business when the first-run Paramount Newark next door would fill up and the Lyric reaped the benefits of the overflow..
