Lyric Theatre / Cinema Capri / Village 4
Eventually the open-air theatre at the corner of Wyndham and High Streets closed , leaving the Paramount and Star Theatres the sole buildings for such entertainment.
Mr. McMillan , by buying both properties, has been the means of improving the programmes. His enterprise in building the Lyric Theatre marked a progressive step in picture entertainment, for a couple of years ago he installed the first talkie apparatus in the Lyric, and more recently still, another machine in the Star Theatre, since which time picture and talkie entertainment has been regular each night of the week.
