Sudbury: Former Odeon cinema, Allendale Road
Not knowing Sudbury I ventured down Allendale Road and thought I would take a photograph of the parade of shops. Looking for the best sun angle I went to the far end and spotted this building, which has been in use as a snooker club, and, despite the somewhat out of the way location, thought that it looked like a former cinema. Back home a Google search rapidly revealed that this was indeed the case and what's more is that there are comprehensive photographs of it in its hey-day on the English Heritage website. One of the photographs, taken in 1935, the year of its opening, reveals a magnificent semi-circular frontage set behind the current glass panelling here LinkExternal link This shows the building from the opposite direction. However satellite imagery of the roof shows that the top of this facade is still in place. The cinema was "short-lived" according to another source on the internet, which, given its tucked-away location, is hardly surprising.
