The Lyric Theatre was opened July 24, 1920. It was renamed Melba Theatre on November 19, 1931. It was rebuilt and reopened February 20, 1938 with Wallace Beery in “The Bad Man of Brimstone”. It was renamed New Melba Theatre (later becoming the Melba Theatre). This small and modestly styled modern style theatre became vacant in the 1980’s. The theatre has a very plain marquee with unusual free-standing neon above. Unfortunately, most of it is broken, and it’s hard to tell what it said. There is a neon ’M' on the facade above the marquee.
Renovation began in early-2017 and it reopened December 17, 2017 as a performing arts center.
