Odeon Leicester Square

It’s not surprising that the Odeon Leicester Square is London’s number one destination for red carpet premieres. Not only do you get blockbuster bangs at this massive 1683-seater cinema, you get them in splendour. The Odeon Leicester Square still has a fully-operational pipe organ and gorgeous 1930s art-deco nymph motifs on the walls. It’s also one of the few remaining cinemas to still have its circle – from which the view (at extra cost) is pretty spectacular. If you’re looking for a more intimate experience try the Odeon Studios ‘mini-plex’ next door, home to five screens, each seating between 50 and 60.

This is an iconic cinema.  It has great character inside, having many art deco features and still has an organ which comes out of the ground while you're waiting for the film to start on occasions.  I've been there a few times and always sat in the stalls, but would like to try out the circle one day.  When you go here, you are not just going to the cinema you are going for the experience of going to the coolest cinema in the world.


The only thing I don't like about it is that the seats are so uncomfortable!


It is somewhere that everyone should go at least once., it definitely has the wow factor.
