    Preston Odeon-June 2012

    Visited with Smurf & Truebritishmetal

    After 2 atempts to get in to St. Joes and being foiled both times it was plan B. we had a good look around the building with no idea a way in. on a hunch truebritishmetal made a few calls and we struck gold and was inside in no time.

    History
    The cinema was first opened in the 30's and had many fetters from the time still intact today.In the 60's major building work was carried out and the balcony and huge dome celling where covered by a plain boring white one. The dome celling its self if somewhat intact, hanging cables have been smashed though it to make way for the "new,modern" one. Part of the balcony has been turned in to a second much smaller theater what my understanding.The whole place was closed on the 5th september 1991 and is in very good condition besides water damaged most likely caused by the fire from sometime ago.​

    The well preserved seating
