Carlisle's Lonsdale cinema to be demolished this month
Last updated at 14:00, Friday, 03 January 2014
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
Anon. Councillors no vision? What has it got to do with councillors? You might as well blame the price of cheese.
Finally! Maybe everyone will stop parking outside my house now.
