This is the museum in Aberystwyth. It was originally built in 1904 as a theatre The Coliseum  and then became a cinema in the 1930s and remained as such until 1977. It was taken over by Ceredigion council in 1982 and now houses a fine museum reflecting local culture and history.

I like your view very much. I'm so pleased that ut was taken over by the council and I hope that it does not become a victim to any cuts.

I hope nothing funny happened to you on the way to the Coliseum (or was that the Forum....?) .
Bill Phillips: Forum...I think. It was a delightful find
Well captured Bill. What a charming theatre this would make too, it reminds me of the Georgian theatre at Richmond, where we saw a play. It is good when these old places can be used for their original purpose. At least the council preserve this one.
Bill Phillips: It would be a delight. Still it has been made into a very enjoyable museum

What a stunning place Bill!
Bill Phillips: Lovely isn't it?
Well done the Council,it looks realy interesting
Bill Phillips: Yes they have done a good job
That's beautiful as can be.
Bill Phillips: I agree Mary. We both thoroughly enjoyed the place
I've visited Aber numerous times as lecturer and external examiner and suchlike, but never got to this museum! An ingenious use for a cinema!
Bill Phillips: Worth a visit Tom. And they sell the Malcolm Pryce books about Aber's only Private Eye Louie Knight
A beautiful building, thank goodness it is in use and not being left to fall into disrepair.
Bill Phillips: Yes it has been put to good use.
Gorgeous!
Bill Phillips: It was indeed Larry
