The Eltham Society Newsletter for May 2012 says the flats built on the site are called Coronet Apartments, 6, Odeon Parade. They face a courtyard and on a blank wall a mosaic recalling Gone with the Wind and plant troughs resembling cinema seating have been provided.

this I just found : looks like the auditorium would completely disappear just leaving the facade and foyer……

I was going to add a similar comment – but it is fantastic image, showing how it could look, and countering the “get rid of the eyesore” arguments which usually accompany any derelict building.

That ‘June 2007’ photo has been ‘doctored’ with photoshop or similar. It is how the building would look if it were ever restored (minus the ‘Odeon’ signage of course, as Odeon have not owned the building for years).
