CINEMA, Concert Hall And Restaurant Vision Drawn Up For Govan’s Lyceum

THE owner of a rundown historic Glasgow picture house has submitted plans to use it as a cinema and events space.

Versatyle Ltd’s planning application for The Lyceum in Govan also includes a restaurant and cafe.

Under the new proposals, there would be a cinema on the first floor with nearly 500 seats.

Ground floor space would be turned into a concert hall suitable for various functions.

It would have capacity for 1,000 people standing, 800 sitting and 700 around tables. It would have a separate entrance.

There would be a 90-seat restaurant on the ground floor, also with a separate entrance, plus a 30-seat cafeteria.

The application is pending consideration by Glasgow City Council officials.

The former 1930s ‘super-cinema’ in Govan Road is category B listed and seated 2.600 people when it opened. It was latterly used as a bingo hall.
