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.

More images from sub offender will follow!

I worked in King's Street in 1971, just around the corner. I remember there was a place who fixed razors and stuff right next to the cinema. Can't remember the proprietor's name but I knew the shop as Horswills'.

Access to places is through a weakness in any security measures (if theres any) put in place by the buildings owners. Unfortunately access to specific locations isn't discussed on open and public forums as anybody could be reading (owners/security/vandals/thieves/arsonists etc etc).
