Someone was living in the Lyric Theater when I saw it last about 21 years ago. It was a small white stucco building and still had its “Lyric” sign. Carrizozo is a quiet town in central/southeast New Mexico.
The Carrizozo Theater was opened in 1916 as an Opera House. It was screening films by 1918. By the 1930’s it had been renamed Crystal Theater, and was renamed Lyric Theater in the early 1940’s, when the seating capacity was listed as 319.
The Lyric Theater was closed in 1979, after problems & protests over the screening of “The Excorcist”.
In 2010, there are plans being prepared to renovate the Lyric Theater.
