    Spruced up in preparation for a fortieth- anniversary DVD release, Lionel Jeffries’s 1970 adaptation of Edith Nesbit’s homely children’s novel still basks in a warm, rosy glow of universal nicety. Set in the early 1900s, the story – about three we...

    If you grew up in the ’80s you’ll remember reruns of ‘Dad’s Army’ during that soul-sapping stretch of Sunday evening telly somewhere between ‘Songs of Praise’ and ‘Last of the Summer Wine’. Now – why oh why? – someone has decided that what we real...

    A sugar-crazed animated monster comedy targeted at kids, the sequel to 2012’s ‘Hotel Transylvania’ isn’t going to get anyone scared. Instead, the filmmakers pay so much attention to crafting a relentless string of in-jokes meant for horror fans th...

    ‘Zoolander’ fans can breathe a flamboyant sigh of relief: 15 years on, this sequel to the fashion-world satire is as funny, silly and lovingly teasing as anyone could have hoped. Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson return as dopey male models Derek Zoolan...

    ‘You are relentlessly annoying,’ barks arms dealer Ed Skrein to Ryan Reynolds’s wisecracking, fetish-clad anti-superhero midway through this latest romp inspired by a Marvel comic. It’s an insult that applies just as easily to the film itself. Blo...

    Taking the ‘Cabin in the Woods’ approach of chucking in all the monsters and seeing what sticks, this kid-friendly spooker based on the crazy-huge-selling stories by RL Stine is more goofy fun than such a blatant cash-in ought to be. It all begins...

    The average lifespan of a chipmunk is five years – which means the kids’ cartoon franchise about the trio of singing superstar rodents has already outstayed its welcome. To be honest, if you have kids under eight, there are worse ways to spend a c...

    They’re not exactly the Fellowship of the Ring. One guy, real-life ex-hedge fund manager Michael Burry (Christian Bale, with near-Aspergian intensity), blares heavy metal out of his office as he analyses the paperwork of thousands of failing home ...

    After the playful, urban and contemporary humour of the Oscar-winning ‘Birdman’, this bleak-faced 1820s-set frontier western sees Mexican filmmaker Alejandro González Iñárritu return to the darker worldview of his earlier films like ‘Babel’ and ‘2...

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.
