  • In this live-action adventure, Mowgli (Scott Lee) is five before he's jungle-bred. The animals act like animals, sort of, which means that Mowgli wrestles with Baloo the bear, tumbles with wolves, but doesn't discuss philosophy with 'em. He swims ...

    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...

    This follow-up to Tim Burton’s 2010 ‘Alice in Wonderland’ brings back most of the same team (though Burton has stepped back to be a producer), and the same high-energy and bucketful of 3D digital effects approach. Mia Wasikowska returns as the emi...

    There’s a wince-inducing scene in the middle of ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ that says just about everything you need to know about this sprawling superheroic mess. It’s 1983, and a group of teenage mutants walk out of a screening of ‘Return of the Jedi’, ...

    ‘Not as bad as it should’ve been’. That’s not exactly overwhelming praise, but it’s about all this shameless, occasionally entertaining cash-in deserves. Arriving a good couple of years after the smartphone game ‘Angry Birds’ hit peak addiction, t...

    Po the panda (voiced by Jack Black) returns as a lovable, paunchy bundle of fur tasked with saving his homeland from disaster in the latest 'Kung Fu Panda' instalment. It’s the first to be co-produced by Oriental Dreamworks—a savvy move, given tha...

    Does any of this sound familiar? Two iconic heroes duking it out over two-and-a-half epic hours… Angsty agonising over the collateral damage that ensues… Cameos from multiple costumed crusaders, just to make sure we’re suitably hyped for the next ...

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.
