Located in the southeast London district of South Norwood. Built for the Oscar Deutsch chain of Odeon Theatres Ltd. The Odeon South Norwood opened on 26th July 1937 with Hazel Ascot in "Talking Feet", with Hazel Ascot appearing ‘in person’.
The exterior had a cream tile cladding, with several horizontal bands of jade green Vitrolite tiles. There was a central window above the entrance, which had decorative grillework. Inside the auditorium, seating was provided for 1,020 in the stalls and 552 in the circle. Lighting was provided by means of concealed lighting troughs.
The Odeon was closed by the Rank Organisation on 20th February 1971 with Sydney Poitier in "They Call Me Mister Tibbs" and Rock Hudson in "Hornet’s Nest". It was purchased by a redevelopment company and was demolished. A Safeway supermarket was built on the site, by 2006 operating as a Somerfield Supermarket and by 2017 it was an Aldi supermarket.
