Forget the theatres and the films, concentrate on the date alone, something happened this day in every venue.

Dunno Richard.

Apart from the Lyceum, None of them exist as venues any more ?

I didn't notice the date at the top.....Dohhh!

May 12 , 1937 was the date of George VI's Coronation. So, presumably, there was a live SOUND broadcast transmitted to all these venues ?????

The level of detail might suggest I'm in possession of a newspaper of this date but probably not for long ...., so Stuart, when are you back at work ? :)
