According to the Ouachita Little Theater website the Lyric had a colorful past and originally opened in 1909. The Ouachita now occupies the building where the Lyric opened in 1923 after a fire the year before in 1922. It started out showing silent movies and in 1930 was equipped with sound. "Say It With Songs" starring Al Jolson was the first talkie shown there.

This is a 1984 photo. The building must have been altered between 1983 and 1984.

Maybe they felt the same way about it as you do. The photo on their website looks similar to the 1983 photo. It appears that they went back to the old style.
