The Odeon Theatre, Barnet opened on 15th May 1935 with Gene Raymond in “Transatlantic Merry-Go-Round”. It was designed by architect Edgar Simmons, who was not a usual designer of Odeon Theatres, as this was originally intended to be a building for County Cinemas circuit and was taken over by Odeon durring construction.
Seating was provided for 1,553; 1,010 in the stalls and 543 in the circle.
It was converted into a triple screen cinema from 10th March 1974 with screen 1 in the former circle and screens 2 and 3 in the rear stalls.
