Ditto to all the praises given. Well deserved. I would only add a note of thanks for the investment the Lyric has made in a great surround sound audio system and digital projection system. First class movie viewing experience. This is what a community based movie theatre is all about.

We sat in the balcony to see a Shakespeare comedy. We had a great time. Even in the balcony we felt close enough to the stage to feel the action.

Not a bad seat in the house. Great value for the movie and at the concession counter. Sit in the balcony if it's your first visit.

The Lyric has once again become a gem in the community. Whether attending a movie or live music or something else, the old style theater with refurbished seats and balcony cannot be beat.The offerings are varied and excellent. If you're visiting Blacksburg, this is one place to be sure to visit.

Cheaper then the bigger venues, the Lyric shows big screen movies and independent films along with hosting plays and musical venues like the Indigo Girls. I always enjoy any event at the Lyric. Being in the center of down town with many restaurants, it is a great date night.

It's a fairly quaint theater that shows some slightly older movies, but free popcorn on Mondays! And, it's only ~$5-7, which is awesome compared to most other theaters. The seating's not bad and it's usually a good time for everyone.

We enjoyed "The Sting" here recently and loved this theatre! Concessions were great as well. Will definitely come back.

The theatre has been around for many years but was updated in 1999. Singers, ie. Rita Coolidge, and movies of late as well as unique, ie. Tim's Vermeer. play in the historic venue.
