BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) – The light switch was hit for Birmingham’s historic Lyric Theater Friday night.
Hundreds gathered to witness the historic event as part of a revitalization project for the area.
The event was organized by the “Light Up The Lyric Campaign” and Rev Birmingham.
For months fundraising efforts have been under weigh to restore the theater. So far over $5 million of the $7 million goal has been raised.
