This was an adobe style structure built in 1881. Originally it was a furniture store and later a dance hall. In 1907 the building was remodeled and became the Lyric Theatre. The Lyric Theatre continued to show movies thru 1955.

In 1983 the owners had the building demolished because it had became an eyesore and hazard to downtown Richfield.

Any further information on this theatre would be appreciated.

The Lyric theater didn’t become a movie theater until the 1930s. It was first a furniture store then completely remodeled into the Richfield Opera house around 1909. In the 20’s it started to show moving pictures and in the 30’s it was completely remodeled into an Egyptian style movie theater, and named the Lyric. It was torn down in 1983. I have a picture of the building as the opera house around 1912 and a picture as the lyric around 1963. i will try and post them soon.
