The address matches the People’s Theater, which is listed here on Cinema Treasures. Lyric must have become the Peoples'. 1910 Sanborn fire map shows the Lyric (name is on the map), and indicates that the building had a balcony. Could this theater have been more substantial than a “small nickelodeon?” Another interesting note about this theater. The recently-built College Station Stadium 14 Theater, also listed here on Cinema Treasures, now stands where this theater did. Too, if the Empress/Liberty address given in that theater’s entry is correct, was where the College Station now is.
