One is cherished, another rots...

Whilst Grey Street is looking really smart in Newcastle, Pilgrim Street is not. The former Paramount which closed in late 2002 now looks destined for the wrecker's ball.

The fire exits have been bricked up to keep any unwanted audiences out.

Missing- a D, an E, an N and two Os

Let us hope that a museum rescues one of the two metal Paramount logos high above the street at projection suite level.

The company who now own the whole block (10 acres) from top to bottom
includes the Odeon building, have lodged plans with the council for complete
redevelopment including apartments, offices and shops..

This is one sleeping beauty who may get a rather rude awakening. Some interior glances here.

What a pity. Let's hope a museum rescues some of it.
