Here's a photo of the Lyric Theatre from the Birmingham Public Library's Digital Collections. People are coming to see Woman They Almost Lynched, a B-western released in March 1953. The four stars listed on the marquee were B-movie stalwarts of the day. In smaller roles the film also featured Ellen Corby, who would go on to greater fame in the TV show The Waltons; and veteran character actor Jim Davis who also did a prominent stint on TV as Jock Ewing on the original Dallas.
I hope when the restored Lyric reopens they show some classics like this one!
