The Lyceum Theatre was originally used to provide the community of Port Arthur with a space to accommodate travelling shows. It opened on October 18, 1909. The building features many interesting architectural focal points, including keystones with bearded faces, segmented semi-circular windows, and a large stone panel in the center of the facade with the name LYCEUM incised in large letters. The structure is steel framed with brick facing and stone trim. The Lyceum Theatre has gone through several renovations. When it was no longer used for stage productions, it was converted into a motion picture theatre, but now houses several offices and stores.
