Long Description:
The Lyric Theater

It was originally operated as a silent movie theater located on the West

side of the square and owned by DE and Lulu Fitton. In 1929 JW Bass

built a state of the art theater for talkies, leasing it back to the Fittons as

the "New" Lyric. A mix of styles ranges from the brick terra cotta facade

and entry to the Art Deco marquee & ticket booth. Admission was $.10

for adults and $.05 for children. It opened with "Broadway", the 1st

$1 million grossing film & remained open until 1977. The carpet in the

lobby is over 55 years old! The theater houses the famous hobo art murals.

The refurbished Lyric is now operated by the Ozark Arts Council.
