A historic Christchurch theatre and neighbouring properties are set to go under the hammer in August.
The Crown-owned company Ōtākaro is selling the former Odeon Theatre on Tuam St, Lawrie & Wilson Auctioneers and adjoining vacant land.
The former Odeon Theatre is a Category 1 heritage building – which was designed in 1883 as a public theatre and hall, before being transformed into a vaudeville venue, cinema and church.
Some parts of the theatre were demolished due to safety concerns in 2012 following earthquake damage.
Colliers International will host the auction on 13 August.
