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.
