According to the Encyclopedia of Cleveland History, the Lyceum Theatre was demolished in 1913. The Lyceum is listed in the 1910-1911 Cahn guide as having 1,131 seats. So far I’ve been unable to find anything indicating that the house ever showed movies.

This page about the Lyceum from the Encyclopedia of Cleveland History doesn’t mention movies at the house. However, Alan F. Dutka’s Historic Movie Theaters of Downtown Cleveland does include the Lyceum, saying that it had a Biograph projector installed in late 1886, and in 1897 it was the Cleveland house that presented the movies of the Fitzsimmons-Corbett boxing match which attracted so much attention to film as a medium for displaying current events. But the Lyceum operated almost entirely as a live theater venue throughout its history.
