Page\Park Architects take lead at Prestwick’s C-listed Broadway Cinema
February 13 2017
Opened in 1935 the C-listed Broadway was designed by Alister G. MacDonald, son of Labour prime minister Ramsay MacDonald and operated as a cinema on and off through to 1976. Since that time it has been put to a number of short-term uses such as an amusement arcade and squash court before finally closing its doors in 2000.
Eilidh Henderson, project lead and depute of arts and culture at Page\Park Architects said: “1930’s Scotland saw an explosion of a new type of building, the Art Deco cinema. Page\Park are delighted to have been successful in the bid to lead a team on the journey with the Friends of the Broadway Prestwick to think about the future use and transformation of the cinema into an attractive community asset.”
An appraisal of the buildings present condition will be undertaken later this month with the first conclusions anticipated by March.
