Muswell Hill's handsome Odeon dates from 1936, and is a grade II listed building; its interior is the most elaborate of any original Odeon cinema to survive. It was subdivided into three screens as long ago as 1974, with the result that in the main auditorium the seats are all in the balcony.
The two smaller screens, 2 & 3, have wheelchair spaces but screen 1 has no disabled access. There are disabled toilets and parking spaces, but no hearing loops. The cinema has its own car park at the rear of the building.
The cinema is served by bus stops for the 102, 234, 603 routes, with the 43 and 134 around the corner on Muswell Hill Road. The nearest Tubes are East Finchley, a little over a mile to the west (follow Fortis Green), or Highgate to the south, down Muswell Hill Road.
