Opened in May 2017. Storyhouse has been carved out of the Grade II listed shell of the former Odeon cinema, alongside a new brick and translucent glass extension. The Storyhouse library, restaurant and independent cinema are housed in the former Odeon’s streamlined art-deco interior. The uniquely flexible 800 / 500 seat auditorium, 150-seat community studio and rooftop bar are housed in the remarkable new extension.
HM the Queen performed the official opening of the building during her visit to Cheshire on Thursday 14th June 2018, coincidentally eleven years to the day & date that the Odeon closed it’s doors for the final time.
