Rex, Ryan & Lyceum theaters in Chinatown

Who could forget the fabulous Crest or the Tower Theater? Fresno’s drive-ins were the most popular with teens, among them the Moon-Glow and the Sunset. The world’s largest outdoor screen was housed at the Sunnyside Drive-in. Did you hide in the trunk to save 50 cents or possibly steam up the car’s windows? Share your old Fresno theater memories here.

Anyone know about the Rex, Ryan, or Lyceum theaters in Chinatown? They existed before WWII, and maybe afterwards, too. Trying to identify which theater is in these photos. Note the electric conduit below the front of the stage, with bare bulb lights, and what looks like maybe a piano below the stage? Already sent these to the local Japanese Buddhist Temple with no success yet. Much thanks!
