Former Odeon Theatre in Galati listed for sale
Romania Sotheby’s International Realty announces the listing for sale of the former Odeon Theatre in Galați, an emblematic building of the city, priced at 690.000€. This architectural jewel, recognized in the press of its time as “The most elegant theatre in Galați”, represents a property with potential for investors wishing to contribute to the preservation of the city’s cultural heritage, but also to develop a commercial function in a very special location.
Originally built in 1911 by Apostol P. Papadopol, an eminent merchant and appreciated philanthropist, the former Odeon Theatre is a historical and cultural landmark. After Papadopol’s death in 1914, the theatre passed into the possession of Ioan D. Prodrom, a close relative and former business partner. Prodrom, a respected figure in Galati’s political and commercial circles, transformed the theatre into a cultural centre. Renowned as the Odeon Theatre, it hosted prestigious plays and captivating performances, becoming one of the highlights of interwar Galati.
With its original architectural elements intact, including the meticulously renovated façade, the former Odeon Theatre exudes elegance and timeless charm. The interior, awaiting a new destination, offers endless possibilities. Viewers and investors can reimagine this space as a special cinema, reviving the golden age of cinema, or as a magnificent theatre for exciting live performances. It also has the potential to be transformed into a prestigious restaurant, an exclusive venue to host unforgettable events or a vibrant cultural centre.
The theatre’s strategic location on Domnească Street enhances its potential as a focal point for cultural and commercial activities, ensuring visibility and a high influx of people.
