Here’s a photograph of people on the Odeon steps, taken only a few weeks after it first opened

That was a huge building. Is it me or does “The Aristocats” always seem to be on the marquees of these places?

Nice pic. An old Ford Anglia I believe parked in the middle. With the opposite angled rear window. Like some early `60’s American Mercury’s had.

Here’s my short video tribute shot in February 2007 before the major demolition phase.

Does anyone have any internal pictures from its last years of operation as a bingo hall?

Did/does the interior retains any of its original fittings, doors railings, light fittings etc.

I’d be interested to know.
