The Lyric Theatre opened Oct 9, 1905 at 124 S. Main “for the purpose of vaudeville and motion pictures”. Later entries in the city directory show an address of 130 S. Main. The Lyric Theatre was closed briefly after a fire on Oct 15, 1908 at a nearby theater forced a reconsideration of safety regulations.
In July 1909 the Lyric Theatre became the Grand Theatre. About February 22, 1912 the Grand Theatre was renamed the Princess Theatre – the mythological birthplace of Judy Garland in “A Star Is Born”. On June 15, 1916 the Princess Theatre became a motion picture only facility after having the stage removed. On March 1, 1920 the building was converted to a retail business. This building still stands today, as the ground floor of the Whitman Hotel.
