Looking At Edinburgh

Old Odeon, South Clerk Street

The 1930 Edinburgh Odeon is a Category B listed cinema. The outside doesn’t look like much, but inside – when we were allowed in – it is pure Edwardian “Italian Renaissance” – dramatic and splendid, from when going to the cinema was a treat, not a cardboard package. Offers over £3.5m for the building, apparently, so if you have some spare change, go for it.

I took this photo here. It’s available on Redbubble: Cinema, South Clerk Street.

Lothian Road: Doors reflecting

The cinema turned Bingo hall, now derelict and empty, reflects the shiny new towers across the road in its doors.
