Located in Worcester Park, a district to the north of Ewell, in south-west Greater London. The Odeon was the 9th new Odeon Theatre to be built and opened by Oscar Deutsch for his Odeon Theatres Ltd. chain. It opened on 8th January 1934 with Madeleine Carroll in "I Was A Spy". Seating was provided for 543 in the stalls and 351 in the circle.

The Odeon was closed by the Rank Organisation on 29th September 1956 with "Kenneth Moore in "Reach for the Sky" and "We Found A Valley".

It was converted into a Macmarket supermarket, later becoming an International and then a Somerfield Supermarket. It was closed in the mid-1990’s and the building was demolished in May 1998. A block of flats, with a Pizza Express restaurant on the ground floor occupies the site in 2009, with a Public Library built on the rear of the site.

You’re 10 years out on the supermarket closure and demolition dates, Ken. It came down in 1998.
