A very unpleasant auditorium to sit in for a show!
Hope someone can post some pics now the front has been revealed. Im not in NY for a few weeks but will take some then.
Um? What is that in the window next door???
Thats a beautiful facade and well restored.
Thats a very interesting site. Great pics.
Lol I don’t think I’ve ever seen a full set of those bulbs in all the years they’ve been there. They are so obvious!
Sorry to hear that but the best of luck with the fight- its a great building, i’ve walked past many times.
Wheres your listed Odeon?

Sorry wrong pic posted above.
Boarded up but with plenty of life behind them!
Behind these walls!
Amazing to think that such an incredible auditorium lies behind these walls that none seems to care about!
…and to think that sweet little ‘Annie Warbucks’ went to the Variety in the mid 1990s!!!
The doors onto 7th were open today and the inside is a building site nearing completion into what could very well be a store!? From the other side of the street you can see building work in progress on the first floor also.
Distant shot up Oxford Street. The bland 60s building is where the once gorgeous Swansea Empire theatre stood until 1957

The worst theatre seats EVER!
I’ve seen 3 or 4 musicals here and it really is a gorgeous theatre, inside and out.
What a gorgeous exterior to this cinema, yet again its a shame what we got left with and now even that has gone!
No, not at all, no problem. I was young!!!! and obviuosly hadnt got my bearings around London by then! I have now !lol
I saw it at Swansea Odeon and then again in Marble Arch.
Wow! i used to love all those old film ad layouts.
lol yes, well it was only Â£2.99
I was in Hong Kong 3 weeks ago and it looks like the complex has gone so it closed before Feb 28th 2008.
Feb 2008 shot of the exterior of the auditorium and stage house with scene dock door and stage door to the right in the photo.
A Feb 2008 photo of the Playhouse. From this distance it looks OK but a closer look will show you that it has been left to the elements of late. I spoke to the car park attendant and he said there was all probability that the theatre would be demolished this year!!! i walked away stunned!
