Brighton's Hippodrome could re-open within three years - owners have revealed.
The Grade two listed theatre closed in 2007. It once welcomed stars such as The Beatles, Houdini and Laurence Olivier.
But now, a campaign to save the Victorian venue has gathered 15 thousand signatures - backed by Dame Judi Dench.
The 'Save our Hippodrome' group hopes to transform the site with a 13 million pound makeover.
