A 2007 shot of the exterior – the nightclub has now closed, and the Majestic is rumoured to become a Casino, this may well involve restoring the interior.

The Kingswest Centre containing the Odeon cinema complex was not the site of the former Odeon Palladium. The Brighton Centre occupies the Palladium site.

Correction to the above information – the Kingswest Centre is not on the site of the former Opera House / Palladium / Odeon, It is the Brighton Centre (Conference venue and Concert Hall) which occupies the site of this former Frank Matcham designed theatre.

It was all renewed 3 years ago with “state of the art” facilities – but every one says that!

I can try and find out for you.

This part of the comments would be better on the Futurist page rather than the Odeon Leicester Square.

Not true – Harry Potter is on at present.

The theatre has a 6 week summer season of live shows – with films in the afternoons and one evening a week.

Outside this it is a cinema 95% of the time with occasional one night live performances.
