July 3, 1913: The reopened Lyceum will show a "movie" titled "The Battle of Gettysburg." The opening "will mark the establishment in Los Angeles of a real feature picture theater of the better class devoted exclusively to the showing of the biggest and most attractive feature films now being produced in the American and foreign market."

"Nothing of historical value has ever been reproduced on the screen that can compare with the Gettysburg films and while motion picture producers for a long time thought such a picture impossible, Thomas Ince, with the services of easily 10,000 men has accomplished this feat in a remarkably successful manner."
