The Lyric has been renovated inside at some point after Lost’s 4 old photos were made. According to the photo in Marquee Magazine, the balcony has been greatly enlarged, with a shallow front section, a cross-aisle, and a large rear section. But the side walls are the same.

This theater is profiled in the newest issue of Marquee Magazine (Theatre Historical Society) because the THS plans to visit it during their annual convention in July. The profile states that it was opened Oct 1894 rather than 1895. The auditorium is pictured and has a single large balcony, with side galleries. I seem to recall that it is housed in a large free-standing building.
