Viewing: Photo | Street View

The Lyric Theatre was opened prior to 1941. It was a secord or third run house located on Cleveland’s west side. It had all 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.

Does anyone have any historical photos either interior or exterior of this treasure?

Any more information of the dates that it stopped showing/what type of theater it was? Thanks!
