    Default London Road Odeon

    LIVERPOOL?S former London Road Odeon cinema is to become a hotel.


    ADVERTISING




    The 74-year-old site which played host to the Beatles and the Rolling Stones in the 1960s was shut last week and replaced by a 14-screen Odeon in Liverpool One.

    There were fears that the former city centre cinema could be mothballed.

    The Odeon group has refused to comment on the site?s future use, saying only: ?Odeon is unable to comment on any plans for property that is no longer in their possession.?

    But a London-based Odeon executive who attended the opening of their new facility in Liverpool One last week confirmed to the ECHO: ?The Odeon in London Road has been bought by a hotel chain.?

    He declined to give details.

    Conversion to a hotel would provide extra bed spaces adjacent to the city?s main Lime Street train station.

    Staff from London Road have been deployed in the new Liverpool One Odeon.

    A 'Travelodge' type hotel would probably do well in that location.
    Certainly London Road could do with a little regeneration.
