The Lyric Theatre is a theatre in Kansas City, Missouri. The four and half-story structure designed by Owen Saylor and Payson opened on December 18, 1926 as the Ararat Shrine Temple. It cost the Shriners $1 million and had a seating capacity of 3,000. It was designed to imitate the Temple of Vesta and was to be part of a complex that also consisted by the Deramus Building and the American Hereford Building on other corners of the intersection at 10th and Central.
It was used as a legitimate theatre called the Playhouse and later the Victoria.
