Carlisle's Lonsdale cinema to be demolished this month

Carlisle's Lonsdale Cinema will be flattened this month to make way for a new car park.

Demolition of the 1930s art-deco building will start on Monday January 13 so that a new car park for the soon-to-be completed Halston Aparthotel can be built.

Initially, the site on Warwick Road will become a 70-space car park once the former cinema building is torn down.

The demolition will take up to 20 weeks to complete and the site’s owners have confirmed that the opening of the hotel will coincide with the completion of the car park. Simon Harrison, one of the directors of site owners Burge Halston, said: “Demolition is due to start on January 13 and will last up to 20 weeks due to the scale and complexity.”

Ultimately, the site will be redeveloped by its new owner, which is turning the former Crown Post Office next door into the Halston.

Have your say

Problem is though Bob it wasn't was it... this is the whole point it's all about cash & no class

I'm sure this Labour Council(Indirecctly) will only be happy when everything looks like the Civic Centre or Morton school.. lol

Anon. Councillors no vision? What has it got to do with councillors? You might as well blame the price of cheese.

New musical artists or older ones... who do you prefer?

Older. They've come through the ranks, learned their craft - timeless

Young blood - always listening out for new music

New artists are usually X Factor or BGT groomed. They last five minutes. Not for me
