A History of Kingstanding – Part 6


Significant Buildings of Kingstanding

Oscar Deutsch’s first Odeon cinema was built on Kingstanding Island (junction of Kingstanding Road & Kings Road) and opened in 1935.  This was the first of 300 Odeon Cinemas across Britain and was built in an Art Deco Design.  All Odeon Cinemas built following the Kingstanding cinema were built in this ‘art-deco’ architecture.

Now in 2019 this building is a ‘Mecca Bingo’ hall.  However its façade remains largely unaltered because it is a Grade II listed building.
