Two London Rd. Landmarks To Be Demolished

Fences have gone up around two buildings on London Rd. in Sarnia that at one time bustled with activity.

Lambton Mall Property Manager Laura Beecroft says measures are being taken to demolish the old Lambton 9 movie theatre and Norm’s Pub & Grill.

“It’s really about the cost and the fact that the theatre isn’t able to be used for anything useful around here anyway,” says Beecroft. “We’re hoping that it’s going to begin in the next week or so and it will probably take about three weeks to demolish.”

While there are no plans for the property yet, Beecroft says the owners are accepting and considering offers.

The Lambton 9 theatre closed in 2013 when it was replaced by the $5-million state-of-the-art Galaxy Cinemas Sarnia at Lambton Mall.

Norm’s closed this past April after the restaurants lease was not renewed.
