Birmingham Landmarks continued to work for the next twenty years, and began a new fundraising campaign in 2013. This new campaign was so successful that the renewed theatre would reopen for a final time only three years later. It is once again a live event space, as its original owners intended it to be. The act on opening night was a vaudeville-inspired variety show to pay homage to the Lyric’s roots. The Lyric now stands as a living memorial, a reminder of the past and a beacon of the future. When we let old beauty fade for the sake of modernism, it is easy to forget these landmarks' importance. Birmingham Landmarks made special efforts during restoration to revive and highlight all aspects of the Lyric’s long and eventful life. Though many fond memories of the Lyric have been lost to time, the next generation now has the chance to create new ones.
