After looking at an old atlas page for College Point, it appears that the Lyceum may have been approximately located at 14-33 College Point Boulevard.

Based on the discussion over at the College Theatre page, the Lyceum would have operated in very close proximity to that newer and much larger movie house, which was located at the archaic address of 319 13th Avenue. In fact, it might have been the opening of the College Theatre, in September of 1926, that led to the Lyceum’s closing.

The building that was the former College Theatre, has a present-day address of 1508 College Point Blvd, and is located a few doors south of the southwest corner of 15th Avenue and College Point Blvd (aka 122nd Street). Who knows if the old street numbering also placed odd and even numbered buildings on opposite sides of the street from each other, but one could assume, that the Lyceum was very likely located on one of the northern corners of this same intersection.

And, now, what of the Regent Theatre…?
