Lyric Theatre and Cultural Arts Center Board of Directors



For almost 50 years, the Lyric Theatre stood as a vibrant entertainment hub for African-American families in Lexington. From its inception as a movie house to its heyday showcasing jazz, soul, and R&B performances by legendary artists such as Ray Charles and Count Basie, the Lyric Theatre was a cultural icon. It not only provided top-notch entertainment but also fostered the growth of black-owned businesses in the surrounding area.

Today, the new Lyric Theatre and Cultural Center is a modern and magnificent facility, offering more than just a glimpse into the past. We invite you to explore our beautiful venue, experience our diverse programming, and join us in celebrating the African American cultural heritage.

The mission of the Lyric Theatre & Cultural Arts Center is to preserve, promote, present, and celebrate diverse cultures through artistic presentations of the highest quality, educational programming and outreach, film, and opportunities for community inclusion.
