The Lyceum Theatre was opened by 1928. By 1950 it was operated by Liggett-Florin Booking Service and they were still the operators in 1957.

It had closed by April 1994 when it was in use as an antique store which closed in May 2013. It then operated as Charlie O’s Bar & Grill, which had closed by July 2018.

Located in the sleepy town of Red Hook, the original Lyceum Theatre is now called the Lyceum Annex. The original auditorium space is now an antique store. There’s an addition to the building in which the current auditorium resides. Just outside of town is also the Lyceum 6-screen theatre.

Is the addition open as a theatre?

Yes, the addition currently is a theater. The original autitorium is a bit peculiar- it is a converted 19th C. church. If you look up at the ceiling you see draperies than cover what ever ornaments or trusses were up there, as well as improving the acoustics. Never was a fancy theater but the building has a certain quirky charm.

I remember seeing films at the Lyceum back in the late 1950’s and early 1960’s when I worked at a nearby camp during the summer. I also went to similar theaters- The Starr in Rhinebeck, a few miles to the south of Red Hook and the Plains in Pine Plains, probably about 15 miles to the east of Red Hook on the other side of the Taconic Parkway. At that time all of these were quiet little towns.
I haven’t been in the region in many years but I understand that they have become virtual suburbs of NYC.

I was there last week, and the Annex antique shop is moving out. The people working there didn’t know what will happen to the theatre building. It is pretty much still intact inside. Even the screen is still there, balcony and everything. I took lots of pictures, I’ll post them soon.
