The photo/postcard in the archive section is almost certainly 1930’s.

The hoarding on the wall appears to advertise ‘House of Unrest’ (dir.Leslie Howard Gordon,1931)supported by Stanley Lupino starring in ‘Love Race’(1932).

Regarding the conversion prior to Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, the previous presentation at the Astoria was Half a Sixpence which ran from its premiere there in 1967 to 3 October 1968. Between then and December 17 the theatre was closed for refurbishment.

The Odeon, Leicester square is the high water mark of cinema history in England. Imagine Buckingham Palace being turned into flats? Should not be tampered with, and thats final.
