It would appear that Manhattan had at least 3 theaters named “Lyric” at about the same time. Could there have been common ownership or were the operators of that time less possessive of their trademark?

A photo of this Lyric in 1927 can be found at:

Was that last comment meant to be funny? Just wondering. I thought it was.

A cat scan of the Maltese was negative for any injuries.

The Lyric Theatre is still listed as operating in the 1926 edition of Film Daily Yearbook with 600 seats. It has gone from listings by the time the 1930 edition of F.D.Y. was published.
