We are cheered to read of yet another historic Odeon cinema being restored, in this instance for future generations of Cestrians (that’s what people from Chester are called – look it up!). The large cinema, built in 1936 to designs by Henry Weedon and Robert Bullivant, is being brought back to life as an arts centre by Storyhouse.
