please check out my facebook group dedicted to Paramount/Odeon Birmingham.
can anyone make out the film showing?
to Stan Austin, your Paramount stories are great, thank you. I would absolutely love to see any photo’s you have related to the Paramount/Odeon. I am trying to compile as much info on the place as possible for future records as no one else seems to be doing that. My email address is:
this is a rare photo from May 1950. The double bill films showing are ‘Prelude to Fame’ starring Jeremy Spencer and ‘Once more my Darling’ starring Robert Montgomery.
very interesting reading these comments. I worked at the Odeon from 1974 – 1988 as a projectionist/ stage tech until they stopped live shows. Then I moved over to the Alex theatre for a while. I know the Odeon inside out and run a facebook memorial page to the place. Anything related to it from 1937 to 1988. Im not so interested in the place after the live shows stopped and I left. I have been back and looked around and was shocked to see the dilapidated state it’s been let go to. Sad really. We were a team of 5 and looked after everything in that place. I am always on the look out for any memorabilia or memories linked to the Paramount/Odeon and have collected a few interesting items over the years. Here is my facebook page:
I would be happy if anyone wants to join the group and add to the memories.
