Lady Lyric Turns 100
Thursday, 22 May 2014
clear

The people of Cache Valley have a long tradition for loving the theater. After the unfortunate destruction of the Thatcher Opera House by fire in 1912, the elegant and practical Lyric Theater was constructed to help fill the void until a larger theater could be built. It was completed in 1913 and this year it celebrates its 100th birthday. This history of this gem of the community has been retold in a new hour long documentary.

Come and join us on one of the following days for a free showing of the film:

From Logan's History

1869

~ The year 1869 was probably the worst of all for growing crops. Less than half a crop being raised throughout the valley, the rest being eaten by grasshoppers or "Mormon crickets".
