Former Odeon Cinema For Sale?
HARTLEPOOL, ENGLAND — Odeon closed this theater in 1981. Re-opened as a live entertainment club called Casears Palace in the late 90’s, the venue only lasted a couple of years before closing once again.
Yesterday, though, a “For Sale” sign has appeared, with Newcastle upon Tyne agents Lamb & Edge handling the property. The theater’s current owner is the Hartlepool-based company Capanac Leisure, who own a number of bars and nightclubs in town.
They also owned the former Fairworld Cinema just a few hundred yards away, which was Hartlepool’s last cinema, closing in May 1983, until the Warner Village opened a few years ago on the marina. The Fairworld was demolished in 1997 and a Morrisons supermarket now stands on the theater’s site.
Details of the Odeon property have yet to appear on the Lamb & Edge website.
