In 1912, a second-floor space formerly known as American Hall was remodeled and opened as the Lyric Theatre on May 3 that year. It was a replacement for the Star Theatre, which had been operating in a building on Center Street since 1910. Unable to compete with the modern, ground-floor Park Theatre built nearby a few years later, the Lyric Theatre closed sometime around 1917.
In 1938, after investing $17,000 in renovations, the Middleboro Amusement Company reopened the house as the Key Theatre. They soon found that the house was still unable to compete with the Park Theatre, now renamed the Middleboro Theatre. The Key Theatre was still advertising in January, 1940, but by 1943 it had been closed.
The building is still standing, and the former theatre space is now occupied by a dance studio.
