Boxoffice, Jan. 5, 1952: “The Lyric, a 300-seater, has been leased by Clifford Hough, owner of the Moonlite Drive-In on Route 32 just south of Lebanon, Mo. The Lyric for many years was operated by Mildred Rauth of Rolla, Mo., who still has the State Theatre at Cabool and the Crocker at Crocker, Mo. Several weeks ago she sold her Ritz Theatre at Rolla to R. E. Carney. Hough has installed some new equipment, etc., in the Lyric.”
