LyceumTheater-Interior(OldPC).jpf_REFW.jpg - Lyceum Theater - The business section of Elmira was threatened with destruction by fire on the night of Sunday, March 6, 1904, when two theaters and six stores were burned, and other business property was damaged by fire, the total property loss amounting to about $175,000 - $200,000. It is not known positively whether the fire originated in the Lyceum Theater on the corner of Lake and Carroll Sts., or in the tobacco factory occupying the store underneath. The Lyceum Theater block soon collapsed and the flames spread westward along Carroll street to other buildings, the fire running across the tops of the adjoining structures. The fire continued to burn for several hours, and falling walls did considerable damage to buildings not seriously affected by the fire itself.
