Odeon Luxe Leicester Square


Time Out says

Absence makes the heart grow fonder – and so, it turns out, does a multi-million-pound spruce-up. The Odeon Leicester Square, the jewel in London’s moviegoing crown, has been restored, improved and reopened with suitable fanfare. It now has a snazzy new bar – Oscar’s – as well as all the most bleeding-edge technical fittings and fixtures, including Dolby sound and digital projection. It also boasts chairs so sophisticated, they’ll practically watch the movie for you. Yes, some of the pricing is on the high side, but as Odeon is at pains to point out, some is also on the low side – especially in what used to be called the Odeon Mezzanine (now simply screens 2-5).

What’s on

FrightFest at ODEON Luxe Leicester Square

London’s primo horror film festival is once again resurfacing, Kraken-like, for its annual edition this August. Dubbed ‘the Woodstock of Gore’ by no less an authority than Guillermo del Toro, FrightFest takes over seven screens in ODEON Luxe Leicester Square and two at ODEON Luxe West End, in its biggest ever stint. For five days, the fest will showcase a terror-inducing line-up of 69 movies that promise everything from violence, gore, blood and suicide to supernatural and alien threats. It opens with a world premier of ‘Broken Bird’ by Joanne Mitchell, and closes with english premier of ‘The Substance’. Needless to say, the festival has an 18 rating. Bedwetters need not apply. Tickets are on sale from Saturday 20 July at midday.
