Originally opened as the Lyric Hall, it was operated by Berstein Theatres in 1921. It was taken over by Provincial Cinematograph Theatres(PCT)/Gaumont Theatres in 1936. It was taken over by an independent operator in 1940 and then came under enemy occupation when the island was over-run by the German’s.

After the war, the Lyric was used as a film venue for the British Armed Forces until it was converted into a billiard hall in 1951.
