Odeon North Greenwich

Located in the southeast London district of Greenwich. Originally opened as The Filmworks, this was an upmarket ‘next generation’ of multiplex cinemas which United Cinemas International(UCI) were promoting in the late-1990’s and early-2000.

UCI Filmworks Greenwich opened on 6th April 2001 and was the second & last of this breed to be opened from scratch, although there were two other former UCI cinemas which were ‘upgraded’ to this standard. Architecturally it could be described as ‘Industrial’ as no attempt was made to cover over ducting for the air conditioning, or hide the basic structure of the building. All beams and joints are left exposed. Opened as a 14 screen cinema, seating capacities vary from 447 down to 48.

It was taken over by Odeon Theatres in late 2006 and has been re-branded with the Odeon name.

screens 13 and 14 seat 48 each, they are like tiny screening rooms, the other four are the luxury seating areas of the four biggest screens accessible from the top floor VIP lounge area, these seats have different ticketing and i think are 18+ only

This cinema was the location for the shooting of the comedy Popcorn. This was made in 2007 but not very successful. The actors had to film at night after the cinema had closed to the public.
