The Lyric Theatre was opened by December 1913. It was reported on in the Beatrice Daily Sun 1916 with this story: “The proprietors of the Lyric theatre in Wymore declined to close their moving picture show on Sunday on the demand of a few church people and business men. There was nothing in the constitution or the ordinances prohibiting Sunday shows, and Mayor Rawlings said he had no power to interfere with the rights of the picture show men".
On August 25, 1930, the Daily Sun reported that Robert Markle would be closing the Markle Theatre and combining it with the Lyric Theatre. The Lyric Theatre was said to be more centrally located in the business district.
While undergoing bankruptcy proceedings, since April of 1936, the Lyric Theatre was destroyed by fire on November 1, 1936. The fire broke out in the projection booth about 11pm and it was said 10 or 12 patrons had to leave the building. Sanborn Maps of 1937 label the site “ruins of Fire". Super Foods now occupies the building on the site.
The Film Daily Year Book of 1929 listed the Lyric Theatre with 500 seats.
