Lyceum Theatre

Located in the Hangpu district. The first Lyceum Theatre was a wooden European style live theatre. It was opened in 1866/67. The theatre was located at 185 Yanmingyuan Road. At the end of 1870 it was destroyed by fire.

In 1874 the Lyceum Theatre was rebuilt using brick and was now located at 57 Maoming Lu. The seating was located in orchestra & balcony levels. This Lyceum Theatre was designed by architects Atkinson & Dallas.

In 1933 it was equipped with a sound system and movies were being screened. After 1945 it was in use as a live theatre again with performances of the Peking Opera. In 1952 it was re-named Shanghai Arts Theatre.

In 1992 it reverted back to its Lyceum Theatre name. In 2020 renovations began to bring the theatre back to its 1930’s appearance.
