Normandy Theatre

The Normandy Cinema was built in 1933 to a design from the local architect Henri Daigue. It is located in the outskirts of Le Havre, and closed as a cinema in 1989. It was transformed into a cabaret theatre, but this was not a very successful venture, and the theatre closed its doors in 1991. It has been for sale ever since 2005, and is in an a increasingly bad state.

In 2009 the city of Le Havre wants to have it marked as a dangerous structure, which would allow for demolition even though it currently is on a protected heritage list. The Normandy Theatre still stands derelict in 2020. In 2022 repairs were being carried out on the facade and the roof. Inside the auditorium the plaster on the main ceiling has collapsed, exposing supporting beams.
