The South Woodford Odeon is celebrating the building’s history by creating a display of memorabilia.

“The building is 90 years old this year, and we invite anyone who has old photos, newspaper clippings or other items relating to the site to bring them in so we can copy them and add them to a display to be unveiled later in the year,” said a spokesperson.

The cinema on the High Road – designed by SB Pritlove in the Art Deco style – was opened on 5 November 1934 by Winston Churchill and was originally called The Majestic.
