A SPECIALLY COMMISSIONED NEW EXHIBITION which traces the history and development of the Winding Wheel building, which was originally built as the Picture House in 1923. It was renamed the Odeon in 1938. In the 1960s the Odeon was acquired by Rank Organisation, the Ballroom was painted red and became “Fusion Discotheque”. It closed as a cinema in 1981. Apart from the “Jingles” nightclub in the Ballroom and café area, the building lay unused for 5 years, but in 1987, Chesterfield Borough Council purchased and completely refurbished the building, taking away the fixed seating and constructing a dance floor above the stalls whilst keeping the internal décor intact. The building reopened in 1987 as the Winding Wheel Exhibition, Entertainment and Conference Centre. In 2000 the Winding Wheel was made a Grade II Listed Building.
