Information for this tour was contributed by Vincent Astor.
Originally opened as the Jefferson Theatre in 1908. Its name was changed to Lyric Theatre when the management changed in 1911, and this is the name by which the theatre is best remembered. It originally presented vaudeville stage shows, and Sarah Bernhardt appeared here. At the moment there is no records of regular cinema shows.
In around 1931 it was renamed Mazda Theatre and in later years prize fights were held there. The Mazda Theatre burned in a fire on January 23, 1941. No trace remains.
