This was the New Lyceum Cinema at 908 Govan Rd, on the junction with McKechnie Street, Govan. The replacement building, by McNair & Elder, was a stunning streamlined suburban Super-Cinema, originally seating 2,600.  The opening and booking was performed by A.B. King, as with so many other halls in the west of Scotland. McKechnie Street it to the right of picture, where I used to live.

LYCEUM CINEMA NOW A BINGO HALL

The Lyceum Cinema is now today a Bingo Hall. I used to sell papers as a wee boy, just where the man in the blue coat is walking past . "Times or Citizen Final!" was the shout when the men were coming past after working all day at Fairfields Shipyard along Govan road way off to the left. Across the road from the Elder Pub and the Elder Park.

LYCEUM GOVAN FOYER

The Lyceum's circular entrance foyer had a central island paybox. From there a pattern radiated in terrazzo tiles on the floor. There was a mural that ran around beneath the central light fitting. The auditorium was originally decorated in blue, pink and lilac.

In 1974 the cinemas auditorium was split with bingo in the stalls section and a 480 seating cinema in the area of the balcony. The circular foyer was also split in half, with a wall running down the middle which gave seperate entrances for the Bingo and the Cinema.

This was the Lyceum_foyer Govan. Notice the price of a seat in the Circle. That’s up the stairs to the right of picture. 6d yes that’s correct 6d - in new money today? 2 & a 1/2 new pence.

THE ELDER CINEMA

The Elder Cinema

The Elder Cinema Rathlin (Reid) Street, Govan Opened in December 1916 by Caledon Pictures Ltd, and designed by AV Gardner to seat 1,121. The plans included a large glass corner tower  feature, though it's unclear if this was ever built, as owing to  War-time restrictions, the owners were told they could only put the roof on the building and then to stop work.

Work carried on regardless, and  the interior was finished causing then to get a fine of 100 for completing the  building without a Licence from the Ministry of Munitions.

The Building was  extended (and the facade refaced) by Gardner in 1931-32. The Elder Cinema closed in March 1959. It opened again as Bingo (as the Vogue) from 1967-70. The Cinema was demolished in the June of 1976.

The last film I saw there was with my Brother Edward.  It was "D-Day the 6th of June" with Richard Todd and Robert Taylor.
