Overall, I did not like this particular theatre, though I did like that the screens themselves were pretty large (for London).

The theatre feels fairly old and dingy, with tape holding the frayed carpet down in places (at least in theatre #4), and having an odd smell throughout the complex (but strongest in the WC).

Odeon also has exceptionally long ads at the beginning, which totaled 25...more

The toilets are somewhat small.

It feels a bit strange to review such a big chain as the Odeon Cinemas, but since I think that this specific Odeon does not fit in with the 'average Odeon', I thought it should be worth a mention. This is probably the cinema I tend to go to the most. It is located on Shaftesbury Avenue, towards the Covent Garden side making it an easy location to meet with friends and have a pre/post cinema...more
