Odeon Middlesbrough - Demolition
I had to pay a visit into town today so I decided to go along and grab some pics of the old Odeon getting demolished, working in there for 12 years I still have a fondness for the old place and it was a shame to see her get pulled down, but there was a twist in the tale, when I got there the Odeon had started to fight back, a large amount of scaffolding had collapsed into the street that run behind the cinema. All of the area was roped off by police and council staff. The TV people were just starting to show up when I left. I've posted the news off the BBC site too.
Amongst the twisted debris can be seen the old staircases and walkways that were in the roof void from where we would change the light that were in the Screen 1 ceiling.
Shame to see it demolished, after the Odeon it was turned into Jumping Jacks Nightclub for a few years before that closed.
