Paramount/Odeon Cinema, Manchester

Visited with Rookie and Appo.

 
Built in 1930 to the designs of architects Frank T. Verity & Samuel Beverley for Paramount Theatres. In 1939 the Paramount circuit was obtained by Odeon. It was twinned in 1973, triplexed in 1979 with a further four screens created in 1992.

The cinema was closed in September 2004 due to competition from the AMC Great Northern, which had opened close nearby in December 2001.
 

Oh and the electricity was turned on, which was handy for a couple of photographs.
