Perry Bar in Birmingham saw the first ODEON cinema open in 1930 and established the brand as not only simply somewhere to watch films, but somewhere to experience them. Iconic art deco architecture and the very latest technology became synonymous with ODEON where you didn’t just go to see a film, you went to the cinema. 

ODEON is at the forefront of cinematic experience: both IMAX and ISENSE offer extraordinary cinema viewing and ODEON also operates London’s BFI IMAX which is the largest cinema screen in the UK. ODEON Leicester Square is another iconic cinema destination, hosting over 700 of Europe’s biggest film premieres since the 1930s.
