Odeon Journey Exhibition
ODEON JOURNEY: The Story of a Cinema, 1908-1995
Memories, interviews and the history of the much-loved Odeon Cinema on London Road, St Albans.
Friday 19th May to Sunday 3rd September 2012
Museum of St Albans
This exhibition tells the story of the Odeon’s journey from 1908-1995, through the words of the people who worked and visited there.
There has been a cinema on the site in London Road since 1908; it played host to a range of different entertainments, from film and dances to performances by some of the world’s leading rock ‘n roll bands, including the Rolling Stones, Cliff Richard and Bo Diddly.
The history of the Odeon cinema is being preserved thanks to a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund. During 2011, St Albans Civic Society have been recording, collecting and celebrating memories of the Odeon cinema. These are now being exhibited at the Museum of St Albans, Hatfield Road, St Albans from May 18 - September 3 2012.
Come along to our FREE film and toy making workshops- June 16 and July 7 at the Museum of St Albans. Call now on 01727 819340 to book your place!
