ODEON Origins

Posted on: September 15, 2008

The big news will have to wait a couple of days, I’m afraid.  In the meantime, please do what you can to try and  spread the word a little – send links to this site, invite people to the Facebook group, post about Film Dash in forums… anything!

In the meantime though, the Spaghetti Gazetti people have a report from the North Arden Local History Society‘s latest meeting.  Their talk about ‘Cinema and Cinema Origins’ included this bit of info:

One name that dominated the Cinema building and film world is that of a Birmingham born man – Oscar Deutsch who opened his first cinema in Brierley Hill in 1928 and went on to found the ODEON chain of nation wide cinemas. They all had an Art-Deco design and were easily recognised by their frontage, the first one was opened in 1930 on the Birchfield Road in Perry Barr with others following (New Street, Kingstanding, Sutton Coldfield and others) the flagship being in Leicester Square, London still the major venue for film Premiers

Why do I find this particularly interesting in the context of Film Dash?  Well, I really couldn’t say…

Oh, the vote for the logo will be up tomorrow – I’ve been dashing around a bit too much to get it sorted.
