I was at the Odeon Barnet yesterday morning.I was on my own in Screen 1.Before the lights went out i was able to see much of the original art deco plasterwork and lights.Well worth a look at if you are in the cinema.

On 17th May 2010, 75 years & 2 days since Barnet Odeon first opened, it celebrated it’s birthday with 2 screenings of Hitchcock’s 1935 ‘The 39 Step’s at the opening night admission price of 2p. Staff were dressed in 1930’s uniforms including tunics, peaked caps and white gloves. The cinema’s manager announced to a packed house in screen 1 that the theatre was Odeon’s oldest cinema. I think they own older buildings, but it could well be the chain’s longest operating cinema.

Moorish styling, art deco features, and loads of octagonal shapes abound in this cinema – Edgar Simmon’s finest. Well worth a visit.

Here’s to another 75 years of movie magic at Barnet Odeon!
Long live Barnet Odeon!
