The May 20, 1916, issue of The Moving Picture World ran this notice:

“Covington, Ind. — The Lyric, Covington’s newest moving picture theater, is open. The theater played to capacity business the first week, and much favorable comment was aroused because of the beautifully appointed interior of the picture house.”

The address is wrong; the building that housed the Lyric (and, later, in 2015, an indoor beach!) is at 318 4th St.

The June 10, 1916 Moving Picture World had another item about the Lyric Theatre:

“Covington, Ind.—Fred Bower, popular moving picture theater manager, has opened his new house, the Lyric, and has been accorded fine patronage by Covingtonians. Bower is entitled to all he gets, because the Lyric is a beautifully appointed theater. While not a large theater as large theaters are known in larger cities, there is ample seating capacity and no pains have been spared on the decorative effects. The finishing has been done throughout in soft colors and one feels like walking into a beautifully appointed home instead of a theater when one enters. A ‘homey’ theater has always been one of the Bower strong points.”
