The Billings Gazette provides this web page about the theaters in Billings, and it says that the World was closed in 1978 and demolished to provide parking space for a bank. The following year Theatre Operators, Inc. opened the World West Theatre at Rimrock Mall, its name probably being a tribute to the chain’s lost downtown house.

A March 23, 1955 article in the Billings Gazette lists the address of the Lyric at 14 N. Broadway, which corresponds with the map view.
