Lyric Theatre

The Lyric Theatre was open as early as 1913, as photographs from the flood of that year show. It operated until early-1930’s. Like many of the older theatres in Huntington, the Lyric Theatre may have begun as a vaudeville house that later came to show a mix of live performances and films. After the Lyric Theatre closed, the building briefly became a bus station. In 1938, the United Bus Terminal had four bus companies operating from this location: Atlantic and Southeastern Greyhound Lines, Cackley R.M. Bus Line, and Logan Williamson Bus Company. In the late-1940’s, the bus depot relocated to the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad station, now Heritage Station, before the current Greyhound station was constructed in 1953.

The Tipton Theater would be built on this site in 1946.
