The Lyric Theatre was listed in the Boise city directory in 1909 with Herman Kaiser as the proprietor. The description given was: “Boise’s popular 10 cent theatre. All the latest moving pictures and illustrated songs. Music furnished by the Kaiser Orchestra.”

The Lyric was located in the 1879-built Perrault-Fritchman building at Main Street and Capitol Boulevard. It closed before the Egyptian Theatre, which it is kitty corner to, opened in 1927. It is on the National Register of Historic Places. Goldy’s Corner, a popular restaurant, opened in the building in June of 2011.

The Idaho Daily Statesman in 2009 said that there was another Lyric Theatre at 913 Main Street, which operated from 1932 to 1941. That address would place the later Lyric Theatre where the now demolished Boise Theatre was.
