Opening in 1914, the Lyric Airdome was located at Seneca Avenue between Palmetto Street and Gates Avenue. The Lyric Theatre was an open air theatre with the main entrance on Palmetto Street and a second entrance on Gates Avenue. The Lyric Theatre was demolished decades ago and has been replaced by stores and apartments.

This raises more questions than it answers: “An indoor theatre is used on wet nights.” Was there an actual Lyric Theatre next to the grounds used for the open air cinema?

I am actually going to say that the link below is where the Lyric theater used to be. It’s odd as these are all one story stores, while all the surrounding buildings are 3 story tenemants. It’s safe to say the theater was on this site while all the construction was going on in Ridgewood, and when it closed, only these one story stores built on this site. https://maps.google.com/maps?hl=en&ll=40.702794,-73.907657&spn=0.000749,0.001321&cbll=40.70282,-73.907701&layer=c&cbp=12,271.49,,0,-4.66&gl=us&t=h&z=20&panoid=LJ-eDhY8uhwsf63XyNV3jQ
