The challenge for Sovereign Signs was to recreate the signage for the building, originally erected as a cinema in the 1930s, in the style of the original but with modern techniques and materials in order to save money and energy. Vandalism and the deteriorating condition of the lights had left the building in the dark in recent times.
The neon signage and lighting is an iconic and original heritage feature of the former Odeon cinema building, which, when illuminated is a significant beacon within Scarborough’s night-time townscape.
We used over 300 metres of flexible faux neon LED to illuminate the fabricated aluminium letters and the 12 linear light rows. An outstanding illuminated display.
This Project was nominated and won the Illuminated Sign of The Year Award 2020 by our peers at the Bristish Sign Awards.
