It's location next to those tiny terraces next door is interesting... !
It used to stand where City Cinema now is.There seems to a website link to old Newport here:
Appareantly The Lyceum was on Queens Square, Bridge St (I'm unfamiliar with Newport so I don't know if this makes any sense w.r.t. today's layout).
I would hazard a guess that it has probably been replaced by the municipal magnificence of a poundstretcher , a greggs and maybe a weatherspoons. Please could I be proved wrong?
Here's to the planners :bash:
its seems this is the case for the rest of the UK too judging from what ive seen.You know, oddly enough the most frequent types of buildings demolished in Newport, of significant architectural beauty seems to have been theatres.
I am however, so very glad that the former Odeon Cinema near TJ's remains.
There is a superb 36 part book series called "Cardiff Yesterday" of which I have close to a full set. There are many good pictures in it of that old area.im curious as to what the area in Cardiff, which is now the saint davids centre.
