The Odeon

Viewing: Photo | Street View

Built in 1935, this old white front Art Deco theatre is still in operation. Single screen, seating a little under 700. The theatre has a squared marquee with no attraction panels but has a good sized vertical in all red like the marquee with white neon lettering spelling out Odeon. The Odeon plays first run attractions. It was listed on the Register of Historic Places in 2008.

Due to the owner retiring, the Odeon Theatre was put up ‘For Sale’ in the fall of 2010.

I was in Tucumcari a few years ago, but I missed this one. Here is a photo, circa 2000:

I noticed # of seats given as 696, but next to the ticket window there’s a sign that says “Occupancy 360.”
