Odeon Gateshead

Located in Dunston-on-Tyne to the west of Gateshead. The 10-screen AMC multiplex opened in the Metro Centre shopping centre on 14th October 1987. In 1994 an extra screen was added which has a seating capacity of 534. The now 11-screen multiplex was later operated by UCI and was re-branded Odeon in 2005.

Seating capacities in the screens ranged from 534, down to 200. Closed in December 2009, when a new Odeon multiplex opened in another part of the shopping centre, it was converted into retail use.

Its understood that the Odeon will be moving from its current position in the Metro Centre (Blue Quadrant) to the (Yellow Quadrant) where the Metroland indoor amusement park has recently been closed down. That part of the Metro Centre is undergoing redevelopment following the successful extension and refurbishmet of the Red Quadrant. The current cinema will then be turned into further retail units

I visited this cinema in its UCI and ODEON states. For me, I just wonder if there were any pictures of this cinema?

Even if it doesn’t have any special decorations in it, excluding the lobby decoration, I’ll miss it since it was the cinema that I saw Toy Story in.

The Odeon Metrocentre 11 closed in Dec 2009 and the business transfered to another part of the mall into a new 12 screen building with stadium seating.
The cinema remains one of the most sucessful cinemas in the UK in terms of attendance (around one millions admissions per year)
