The Lyric Theater is a town classic with a touch of modern. The movies are not only old but produce the modern world as well. They support events and discounts and add a whole lot of flavor to our cozy town.

I love going to old movie theatres and the Lyric did not disappoint. It wasn’t too crowded, the staff was friendly, and the theater was big. It’s in the heart of downtown Blacksburg so plenty to do right around there. Just allow time to park.

This is the number one place to see the best films in Blacksburg. So glad the theater was restored, but it still needs work. Some of the seats are in poor shape, but one learns what sections to avoid. We especially like the 10:00 a.m....More

We're sorry you didn't enjoy your visit to the Lyric. I'm assuming you came to an evening show since downtown is quite busy at night. Parking on campus is free after 5:00 and there are several parking lots and a parking garage withing three blocks...More

A nonprofit restored 1930's movie theatre with 400+ seats, showing first-run and indie films plus occasional stage events or live music.Reasonably priced movies, events and food/drinks.

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.
