Beautiful theatre you Can't Beat A Matcham!! - but as you said needs alot of work - have a look at the pics on this link below - the pics above the false ceiling show whats left up there!
The Pavilion being destroyed!!! The Pavilion is nothing but a shell now and 50% of that isnt original. The auditorium was gorgeous- a little like Her Majestys but with just one balcony. I saw Jessica Lange in the dire movie 'King Kong' there in what must have been one of its last screenings as a cinema in the late 70s early 80s. The facade is beautiful and kind of well preserved but what lies behind is a disgrace to London.
THE LONDON HIPPODROME CASINO Opening 2010. tbc
The old Hippodrome and the new! Watch image for a few seconds.
No. Everything that you see today will stay and be restored to a high standard. The Hippodrome name will stay because its still going to be called The Hippodrome. The new place will look so much like a theatre because they know already there is a lot that can be still seen of the original and they are copying that to make the new building. Im as disappointed as you are but i think it looks stunning!
The work of one great man. Mr. Frank Matcham. London Hippodrome. Picture 1 The photos on these two sites show the similarity of two of Mr Matchams major London works. The model for the 'new' London Hippodrome casino, i think has been greatly influenced by the great restoration work done at Mr. Matchams Shepherds Bush Empire a few years ago! The work of one brilliant man. Mr Frank Matcham.
