“A great example of art deco Odeon cinemas”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 January 2011

This cinema was built in 1936.It was designed by George Coles and is the epitome of 1930s art deco style.It is currently listed Grade II*.The cinema was converted in standard style to a triple in the 1970s.A wall was dropped from the circle and the stalls divided into 2 cinemas.It is screen 1 which displays art deco at its finest.this is the original circle.Along the ceiling and leading to the screen is a motif resembling a strip of film.Either side of the screen are Odeon clocks.The foyer and all internal parts are otherwise mush the same as they would have been on opening.The exterior has the typical faiencing.The entrance was changed to face Fortis Green Road in the design stage to avoid the sensabilities of the congregation of the local church.If you are interested in architecture in general or art decp specifically you should make a visit to this building a must.
