A wonderful theatre. I used to go there all the time when I lived in London prior to retirement, Its great to still have a large cinema and not a shoe box with 6 armchairs and a TV screen, I think they call them Multiplex Cinemas. Ha Ha. Go to the Odeon on a special occassion and see the Compton Organ played by Donald MacKenzie,the House Organist…Its well worth it. or better still go to the Odeon when they are showing a special Saturday morning Silent Movie with Donald at the Compton Organ as backgroung for music and special effects. That is an experience.
If only the Odeon Group would bring back the Organ for most Friday and Saturday evening performances I’m sure it would enhance ticket sales. Where else in the Capital would you get such a treat,like cinemas were 40or 50 years ago.
