The Lyric opened February 7, 1918 with all proceeds going to the Red Cross. The Fitzpatrick-McElroy Circuit operated the 1,000 seat theatre at its opening with George H. Kennedy as its first manager. Distinctive “automobile box seats” in the balcony saluted the auto manufacturing industry while allowing groups to sit together.

Should be changed to Cadillac 4 w/ 4 screens. Goodrich made this change as a 100th anniversary event.

The Cadillac Theatre became a five-plex called the Cadillac 5 Theatres. An architectural plan was developed to improve the venue by reducing it by a screen. That became the 100th Anniversary project in which the theatre was renamed Cadillac for in 2018. Lust two years later, Cadillac 4 closed March 16, 2020 along with all of the Goodrich Theatre Circuit’s portfolio due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Goodrich then declared bankruptcy ceasing operations.

The theatre reopened under new management of GQT Movies Circuit on August 7, 2020 as the GQT Cadillac 4. (Mason Asset Management and Namdar Realty Group purchased the bankrupt circuit with partner VIP Cinemas taking over operation of 22 other former Goodrich Quality Theatre locations. GQT Movies' home office is located in Kentwood, Michigan.) The venue then closed November 18, 2020 again for COVID-19 and reopened December 25, 2020. This entry should be listed as Operated by GQT Movies.

How much, of any, of the original interior still exist or was it entirely gutted when it was refitted as a multiplex?
