Ian commented about Odeon Manchester on Jun 4, 2007 at 12:51 pm

A report from the Cinema Theatre Association, who put the Odeon forward for an urgent spot-listing, states that:–

“We were completely shocked and horrified to discover from the English Heritage inspector that most of the interior decoration had been deliberately trashed in a targeted removal of anything of architectural merit.”

Also the entrance is in the road which is the other side of the block from Darthill Road. I think, enlarging the google map that it is called Robin Goodfellows Lane. It is a very minor road!
