Founded back in 1930, ODEON is the largest and best-known cinema chain in the UK and Ireland. And, famous the world over, ODEON Leicester Square has hosted over 700 of the biggest film premieres since the 1930s.
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.
Today, we are owned by Terra Firma and our passion for film and the whole cinema experience is so deep- rooted that it is embodied in everything we do. We're Fanatical about Film and so continuously strive to enhance and improve our guests' experiences.
We are at the forefront of cinematic experience: both IMAX and ISENSE offer extraordinary cinema viewing and we also operate London's BFI IMAX which is the largest cinema screen in the UK. We have the UK's biggest cinema loyalty scheme - ODEON Premiere Club - with over 2 million members.
We offer so much more than a standard cinema screen, popcorn and soft drinks. We now have Costa Coffee in many of our locations, a superb cocktail lounge called Ambar, a Gallery offering including unlimited popcorn, nachos and soft drinks and The Lounge, the ultimate in luxury cinema-going.
We pride ourselves in the very best cinema experience: cutting-edge technology and the widest choice of experiences (this extends way beyond the box office - we also screen live sports and cultural events and special screenings for specific groups).
We are Fanatical about Film. We are ODEON.
