Inside the Lyceum, the lobby features a vaulted domed ceiling, murals, and an auditorium with a Beaux-Arts-style proscenium arch, carved ornament, and a detailed ceiling.

Throughout its long history, the Lyceum has hosted many legendary actors and actresses, including Bette Davis, Judy Holliday, Joseph Cotton, John Garfield, Montgomery Clift, Ruth Gordon, Lauren Bacall, Angela Lansbury, Billy Dee Williams, Helen Hayes, Rosemary Harris, and Whoopi Goldberg.
