The second Lyric Theater in Waterbury opened in 1911 and became The Lido Theater in 1935 with the Quatrano family in charge, followed by Billy and Johnny Sirica, until it went dark around 1962. The Sirica brothers then became owners of the Watertown Drive-In.

I was in Waterbury on Monday and decided to visit every listed Waterbury movie theater, living or deceased. I couldn’t find the number of this building as it was demolished but 236 wasn’t anywhere.
Oh well.

I remember seeing the Lido while driving down South Main some time in the mid-1990’s so it must have been taken down soon after then.

I have a photo of my father in 1939 changing the marquee at the Lido. “The Secret of Dr. Kildare with Lew Ayres” and “Reno with Anita Louise & Richard Dix” Was playing. My Dad was an usher there and my uncle was the projectionist.
