Predator On 43rd Street

Lyric Theater (1987)
214-26 West 43rd St - New York, NY
This theater opened its doors in 1903.  It was converted to a movie theater in 1934 and they continued to show films for almost 60 years.  Lyric closed in 1992.  The interior was demolished and combined with the interior of the Apollo Theater in the mid-90's.  The combined and remodeled Lyric/Apollo theaters were reopened in 1998.

This photo was taken in June, 1987 before the premier of Predator.  The 80's action flick was released twenty years ago today.
