The Lyric Theatre was opened in 1916. It was renamed Strand Theatre in 1927. Ralph and Emma Todd, husband and wife, owned the theatre from 1945 to 1947 and renamed it Dawson Theatre.

Closed in the 1960’s it was converted into the C.F. Neff Antique Automobile Museum.

Really low quality listing.

Unless there was another theater, which I doubt, this is not demolished. Looks like it is storage for an antique store. It’s a little red brick thing with gray limestone trim and a glass block ticket booth. I doubt the seating is correct. 811 is significantly more than the population of the town in 1940-50. It is on the east side of S Broadway, 2nd building north of Nichols. No streetview, and the google map is a complete mess with all the markers in the middle of the road, so I’m not sure on a number.
