The Lyric Theatre opened in 1918 on 109 West Mason Street, with seating for 244. In 1926, the theater’s new owners renamed it the Polo. Three years later, the first sound film was shown. The Polo received an Art Deco remodel in 1935. It closed in 1944 when a new Polo Theatre was built on East Mason Street.
The new Polo sat about 350, and opened in 1945. The theater closed in 1960. The theater was converted to a pharmacy and hardware store. The Polo’s rather simple marquee is still intact, now advertising the building’s current occupants.
The first Polo Theatre, the one-time Lyric, still stands today as well, now a flower shop.
