A friend of mine Roy Moore bought the premises and turned it into a prop hire company for T.V and film. He then built a studio inside to make adverts and even some films. The interiors of The Italian job were filmed here. I took Roy to the cinema ten years ago when it was a Chinese restaurant. He told me so many stories as we were given a conducted tour that I asked him to write his memories of the Odeon and his company which eventually became Superhire. He sent me 12 pages just a few days later and they are now in the Gunnersbury Museum. Les McCallum

My previous link has become corrupted. THIS is what the Odeon looks like in 2009.

As a teenager I made an advert at the Studios, even then I was intrested in old cinemas but remember there was very little evidence of it having been one apart from the exterior as stated. My memory recalls there were two studios one at the front and one at the rear both roughthly the original height of the auditorium with dressing rooms built along the left handside. There was (at least as I recall it) no evidence of the circle which may have been removed. Later on I worked for a company belonging to the original owner of the studios and was told that at one time half the building was a TV property hire company and he developed the studios from this.
