Answer to first Mystery Theater below.
The Lyceum was located at 3350 Mission Street between 29th and 30th Streets.
It opened c1908, but it's name was changed to the New Lyceum Theater; due possibly to some modernization or even a change of ownership. By 1940, however, it had dropped the "New" and became just the Lyceum once again. A neighborhood theater, it served the Outer Mission and the Bernal Heights districts.
In the early 1960s, it closed it's doors forever. Today the location is occupied by a Safeway store.
Answer to second mystery theater.
The photo is of the old Bayview Theater which was located at 4935 Third Street, now the site of Bayview Savings, I believe. Opened in 1924, it closed for good in 1957.
