The Birmingham, Ala., City Council approved a plan to give $500,000 to help restore the Lyric Theatre, a downtown vaudeville playhouse and movie theater that is almost 100 years old. The funds, which the city will get through selling capital bonds, will go toward restoring the lobby and toward structural issues, including falling plaster and emergency exits. The restoration is expected to cost $15 million to $18 million, and volunteers have already raised more than $600,000.
