The Lyric Picture House was built for cine-variety and opened in April 1913. Seating was provided on a single floor. It was closed as a silent cinema when ‘talkies’ were being introduced in the late-1920’s.

In recent years it has been in use as a sauna, followed by offices for the Richmond Chamber of Commerce. In early-2013, there was consideration being put forward to rehabilitating the building as a community cinema.

Next door where the gas station now stands was the Queens (Gaumont) Cinema.
