Wednesday, October 14

We will be offering our first Baby Brigade night at the Lyric. This is a chance for new parents to get out and see a movie that they want to see--not an animated or children's film--without having to leave their baby at home or worry about their little one disturbing other guests. Featuring dimmed lighting, reduced volume, changing facilities in the auditorium, and stroller parking in the lobby, Baby Brigade shows are recommended for babies one year of age and under. Though there is not an official age limit, these are usually PG13 or R rated movies, in this case STRAIGHT OUTTA COMPTON.
Beer and Wine Fridays and SaturdaysBeginning Friday, October 2, the Lyric Theatre will be offering beer and wine to our over-21 movie patrons with the help of Blue Ridge Mountain Catering! This service will be available on Friday and Saturday evenings only, starting a half hour before each movie begins. The cost of a beverage will be $5. Consider it a donation that comes with a drink! Bottoms Up!
Dinner & a MovieThe Lyric Theatre and select downtown restaurants are partnering to provide an opportunity to combine good eats with good film! Click download for a promotional poster with a list of participating restaurants and more details.
Free popcorn at all Monday shows!
