This was a secord or third run house located on Cleveland’s west side. It has approximate 800 seats on one level. It was most noted for it’s very large marquee. The auditorium was a basic, no frills square box. If anyone has more info on this theater, please post.

The Lyric is still standing, and is known now as AACCESS-OHIO, an Arab-American community organization. The restored building has wood-finished doors, and a marquee that has “AACCESS-OHIO” in both English and Arabic.
