South Woodford Odeon, High Road, London E18

Shhh! its just started! Pencil and watercolour 149 x 210 mm Evelyn Rowland

This delightful piece of Odeon architecture is only a facade. Inside it has been divided into the usual 'screens';  perfectly adequate to view but woefully short on experience. 'The pictures' used to be somewhere to go;  the building was important.   Still, the outside is preserved, at least from the first floor up. 



  1. Hi Evelyn! Glad you're blogging here. Lovely drawing - at least it is still a cinema. There's a beautiful building on Essex Road that seems to be suitable only for leaving derelict since it closed as a cinema and then bingo hall.

    1. thanks james! i like this architecture, something magical about this style that other eras don't quite have.
