A lovely old restored movie house with updated equipment. Especially like Monday morning showings of films. It's a perfect time for those of us of a certain age. It's a non-profit and membership comes with some perks.

This theater is small but has a lot of character. They have discounts at certain times so makes it a good deal. Good date night.

The Lyric is fantastic for cheaply seeing quality movies that are more serious and perhaps a few weeks after opening. The popcorn is fantastic and the money goes to the non profit that runs the theater. There are also special concerts and events that are...More

This is our favorite movie theater. We prefer going on Mondays when there is free popcorn. We like paying less than at most theaters.We like that it is close to us. It also has a feeling of history as it still has 30s era decor....More

The weekly movies make for a great date night. Inexpensive and fun in an old timey atmosphere. We like to keep up with what is showing weekly.
