The address of the Lyric Restaurant, still located in the former theater, is 33 W. Center Street. Here is a Google Street View, since ours isn’t currently working.

The Lyric Theatre was noted in the “Among the Picture Theaters” feature of The Moving Picture World for March 22, 1913 (scan here). The house had been recently built for owner-operator Richard Dabb, on the site of his earlier theater of the same name.

I was able to take a photo of the Lyric theater in August 2005, it currently is being used as both restaurant and bar. It appears the exterior was recently painted. You can view the photo here

Theater owned by Richard Dabb. In April 1933, he began allowing the local Polish American club access to the theater to perform a monthly benefit show.
