Mother's last Broadcast of Stars Of Tomorrow Show

The Lyric Theater was one of the best equipped theaters in Clearfield and presented first run movies and stage shows. It was opened prior to 1926 and was still operating in 1957. Sadly it was demolished to make room for a parking lot in a town of about 9,000 people.

Beside being a first run house, the Lyric also booked stage shows. My Mother did her last broadcast from the stage of the Lyric.

The man directly behind Mother was Jack Carron, a television and movie actor friend of the family who was the MC. Because there was a movie also shone that night, the screen was left down, but the stage was large enough to do the show in front of the main curtin. It played to a sold out house, and the station taped the show for rebroadcast at it’s normal time slot.

If I’m not mistaken, the movie that was running at the time was “Make Believe Ballroom”.

The Lyric was actually located on the corner of E locust St.and N.Third St with the entrance on Third St. My Dad was the projectionist for many years during the 1930s and 40s.I watched many movies there for free in the evenings and Saturday afternoons. The location is now a parking lot. RLKeirn
