Photographic Print. Lucky Star Amusement Arcade retro façade was on the promenade at Blackpool.
was used as a dramatic moody backdrop in the TV series Blackpool
starring David Tennant. I cannot believe Blackpool council have allowed
this classic amusement arcade façade to be
destroyed in 2014 to make way for....another Wetherspoons pub when there were
already 3 in Blackpool. If it had to be a pub they could have kept
the façade, or its Las Vegas style illuminated huge
star, signage and stars would have looked cool emblazoned across the bar
building. Was it not in enough publicity
to convince them to keep it, that Lucky Star Amusements façade starred
in the award winning BBC hit tv
series Blackpool with David Tennant and David Morrisey and in a pop
video with Robbie Williams ?? Planners said in a report
to the committee, there "is the potential to have a more interesting and
imaginative facade, representing the vibrancy of the resort". That
describes the façade as it was. How could the planners not know how fashionable, desirable and expensive these vintage cut out metal letters are ? In heritage terms, for Blackpool, it was
the equivalent of the 'Welcome to Las Vegas' sign. It should have been
listed and protected from bland commercialism.
Colours are as accurate as possible but may differ slightly due to screen calibrations.
