Newcastle Odeon 8064

    Newer Older

    The main screen 1 of the Newcastle Paramount Odeon was "modernised" in 1975 when there was a false floor extended from the the front of the balcony to the proscenium to create a new smaller 1,228 cinema with two smaller auditoria below. A fourth screen was added on the former stage in 1980. Behind the torn screen there is a hole in the wall revealling part of the decorated safety curtain, which must be set about halfway down.

      Interesting, often wondered if the safety curtain still existed behind the old stage area...
      What a shame it won`t be seen again....
