I believe that this theater went back to Cannon in 1992-ish. Advertisements from 1993 says that the Putney was operated by Cannon.

A little known fact is that this new ABC built in 1975, designed by architect Alan Morgan, was originally to be a twin. However, last minute changes to the plans, splitting one of the auditoria, meant that it opened as a triple. This is why Screen 1 was a shoe box shape and the small Screen 3 was an awkward shape with a lot of void wasted space in front of the projection box and behind the screen.

I started my career in the film industry at the original Odeon Putney in 1967 as a trainee projectionist. It had a wonderful atmosphere, and all the staff were more like friends than work colleagues. It was heartbreaking when it closed and we had to strip out all the fittings ready for demolition.

Glad to see she’s still going strong, and business is good.

I remember queuing up on Putney Bridge to see Jaws.
