This started out life in 1879 as the Foster Building(s). Live productions and silent movies were brought to town and presented in the Aerodome just down the street in an empty lot. The Foster Building(s) started out as the Happy Hour Theatre when the weather got bad they would bring the productions inside.
It was still known as the Happy Hour Theatre in 1929, but by 1931 had been renamed Lyric Theater. In the 1950’s it received a facelift and marquee along with its balcony. In 1967 the final show was “Beach Blanket Bingo”. After several owners, in the late summer of 2016 the Lyric Theater is about to open its doors again for movies, live performances and events.
