    Here’s definitive proof that a single performance can make an entire film. The premise of ‘Central Intelligence’ is simplistic and underwhelming: a former high school star turned jobsworth accountant teams up with former bullying victim turned CIA...

    While 'Finding Dory' is crammed with the kind of visual pleasures we’ve come to expect from Pixar, the story doesn’t always reach the heights of invention upon which the animation giant has built its reputation. The film lacks the psychological pr...

    A little orphan girl is snatched from her bed late at night by a big-hearted vegetarian giant and whisked off to an unwelcoming land of over-sized cannibals in Roald Dahl's much-cherished 1982 book 'The BFG'. For this movie version, aimed squarely...

    The hilarious start of this cartoon from the ‘Despicable Me’ team feels lifted from one of those pets-do-the-funniest-things montages on YouTube. Front-loading the best bits, ‘The Secret Life of Pets’ begins by imagining what the animals in a New ...

    This adaptation of Jojo Moyes’ bestseller ‘Me Before You’ might have the structure of a chocolate-and-tissues weepy, but it’s a romcom with brains. The movie manages to shift sensitively from laugh-out-loud moments to tear-jerking scenes, discussi...

    The blockbuster arms race officially goes into nuclear meltdown with this insanely OTT sequel to the hugely enjoyable, already-ludicrous-enough 1996 alien invasion smash. Never a man to shy away from a world-ending special effect – remember that t...

    Do you believe in ghosts? The answer could seriously affect your enjoyment of this old-school supernatural sequel. If it’s yes, you’re in for a fun night at the movies: a smart, convincingly creepy account of a ‘real-life’ haunting. If it’s a no, ...

Normally I can rely on this branch to be quiet, there to be a choice to sit anywhere, no queues and friendly service however not this Saturday!

Online 10 minutes before the film it said there were only 5 people who had booked to see Hateful 8. When I arrived there was quite a queue and once I got to the front was told it was going to be rammed and I might not get to sit next to my bf....
I think the lady must have been new/ stressed as she was flapping and turned off her cash register by mistake. She apologised plenty so I felt bad for her but after being told seating was tight I was getting a bit annoyed. 
Luckily I went in and got reasonable seats on the side near the back.... Phew! 
I think it was so busy as a lot of cinemas aren't showing it (it's well worth it by the way!) 
What really annoyed me is people coming in 30 minutes late and walking in front of the screen - not Odeon's fault though.
They were showing it in their teeny tiny screen which was a shame and for £12 each outside of the centre of London it was a bit steep! Having said that seats were comfy, there was a good view of the screen and the place was clean and tidy.

The Odeon was renovated a few years ago to incorporate The Lounge and with it came bigger, more comfortable seats and a new Costa coffee machine. Though the coffee machine causes delays and the staff can be less than helpful at times, it's a pretty decent cinema-going experience on the whole. The automated ticket machines mean you can get there just minutes before a show and pretty much guarantee that you'll have time to buy your tickets (as long as it's not a sell out) so as I live really close, I can pretty much wait until the listed time before setting out.


The Lounge is a novel experience. It makes you feel a bit like a kid again - especially if you order Shirley Temples.
