The town of Bonne Terre with a population of a little under 4,000 residents had two major theatres in its heyday, the Lyceum Theatre and the Lyric Theatre. The Lyric Theatre was located on E. School Street a couple blocks from Main Street. I couldn’t find a timeline on the Lyric Theatre but it has been closed and demolished for decades.

The most notable feature of the Lyric Theatre was its front facade with its rounded archway over the entrance. There was a diamond over the archway with a large L in the middle.

The Lyric was listed in the 1914-1915 American Motion Picture Directory, along with theaters called the Dreamland and the Opera House. In the 1926 FDY, the only theater listed at Bonne Terre was the Odeon. There was a house in Bonne Terre called the Odeon by 1923, and it appears to have been relocated to a new building in late 1924.
