Former ODEON Cinema, Leicester by Philip Butler

Former ODEON Cinema, Leicester

Athena, or the old ODEON as most would know it, is one of the few examples of former a Art Deco cinema that has been successfully (sympathetically) restored and repurposed for an alternative use. It now hosts conferences, weddings and live music. When so many similar old cinemas are vacant or fighting demolition, it’s encouraging to know that they can still be successful businesses, in addition to wonderful eye candy for the passing pedestrians!
Built in 1938 – Grade II listed.
