Odeon Chester Feb 2012 (Pic Heavy)
 
Visited with Blobber, Suboffender, Vicki, Amyrummi and Phil


Opened on 3/10/1936 Odeon was the second "super-cinema" of Chester.
In 1976 It was converted to a 3 screen from one single projection room , then again in 1991 2 more screens added, where the original upper projection-room was re-used.
It had one final facelift in 2002 where the colours where changed from red to blue!

Sadly in 2007 it closed its doors now under ownership of chester council, their plans are to turn it into a theatre.
