Compared to the cinemas in Belgium very small screening rooms but that is what makes it special. You have to get in via the coffee shop where you can buy food and drinks. It is a weird concept for me but it works. I paid...More

Excellent cinema experience, overlooking Leicester Square Xmas market and right in the middle of London’s theatres, shopping and entertainment centre. If you’ve been to London and not been here, you’ve not been to London.

The biggest screen in Britain with lots of history. It’s epic, but the prices are steep. Went to Starwars and paid 26 pound for the ticket with more legroom, wow.... They could have made more of the history of the building and visitors. Now there...More

We saw 'The Party' at one of the Odeon Cinema's studios yesterday evening. It was a film we very much wanted to see, and we were glad to find that it was still showing in this tiny 32-seat cinema. Unfortunately the man sitting beside me...More

Unable to get into Death of Stalin at Cineworld, we ended up seeing The Party at the Odeon Studios. Apart from the fact that the film is overrated, overacted and underwhelming, the whole experience was thoroughly depressing. From the shabby entrance through a run down...More
