I have not been in the Odeon for quite a few years now. Ridiculous costs for absolutely everything and it was always freezing cold regardless of the season and personally i have never sat in such an uncomfortable cinema house. Cold..not comfy..no wee ice cream dude thankfully or id have had hypothermia..and i am not DEAF!! too blinkin loud an all. I like a wee treat and nite out now an then but never to that place...worse that Edinburgh's Dungeon Tours! ( In my opinion )
