Opened in 1910, the Lyric Theatre ran a long life in downtown St. Louis, it was one of seven theatres on the southern end of downtown St. Louis. It was located at 6th Street and Pine Streets across and down the street from the Capitol Theatre. It was a grind house opening early in the morning and closing late at night. Towards the end it ran adult movies followed by a period as a burlesque theatre. It closed in May 1958. Demolished in 1963, the site is now one of the Stadium garages.

Seating capacity was 555 in 1927. Theatre’s success led to the opening of the West End Lyric, later known as the West End. As a movie house it closed in December 1957; theatre reopened as a burlesque house in January 1958 with this policy continuing until the ultimate closure in May 1958. Theatre demolished in early 1963.
