I’ve been going to the Odeon Muswell Hill since childhood and in my early teenage years Friday nights were family film nights followed by fish and chips.
Designed by George Cole and built in 1936, the Art Deco inspired building has hosted an amazing range of film from early talkies to 3D digital blockbusters.
I think I even saw a Wurlitzer organ, played by an energetic lady, come up through the floor here before the start of a programme.
The Odeon has now closed but the good news is that the grade II listed building will remain a cinema under the Everyman banner, due to open shortly. We wish it every success and look forward to many more years of film in our local community.
