Hi - I am working on a Heritage Lottery Funded project for a a local charity and wondered if there are any members who have memories of the Odeon cinema and/or photographs, cinema tickets, or have relations who worked at the cinema - ticket sellers, projectionists, usherettes, and who would like to be interviewed as part of our research? The years we are looking at are 1959-1981. Many thanks, Rochelle

Welcome to the forum Rochelle, I went to see Cliff Richards and the Drifters, who changed their name to the Shadows, sometime in 1959, at the Barking Odeon. At that time there was a lot of "one night stands " performed there.

Thanks for that - i don't suppose you know if the Odeon in Gants Hill had shows on as well. I've been in touch with the Odeon group but they don't have any archived material at all about the Gants Hill Odeon.
