News About This Theater
- Sep 27, 2006 — Odeon Morecambe
Like many of the original Odeon Theatres built by Oscar Deutsch, the site chosen was a little out of the main town centre, (where land prices were cheaper), and the Odeon Morecambe is a good example of this. It is located at the corner of Euston Road and Thornton Road in this Lancashire seaside town. The Odeon was opened on 2nd September 1937 with Sandy Powell in “It’s a Grand Old World”. It had seating provided for 1,084 in the stalls and 476 in the circle.
Taken over by the Classic Cinemas chain in December 1967, it was re-named Classic Cinema, and was closed on 28th February 1976 with Kenneth Williams in “Carry On Behind”.
The stunning Moderne style exterior much of which including the projectionists walkway is now much deteriorated. As it is not in a prime location, it is not seen by many tourists to this once popular Lancashire seaside town. Now part of a dime a dozen DIY hardware store chain.
