Odeon Cinema, Marlow.

The County Cinema was opened on 14th January 1938 with Anna Neagle in “Victoria the Great”. It was built for the County Cinemas chain. The cinema was set back from the road with a forecourt in front. Seating was provided for 490 in the stalls and 258 in the circle. There was a small stage, but no dressing rooms.

The County Cinemas chain was taken over by the Oscar Deutsch chain of Odeon Theatres Ltd. in September 1939, and the County Cinema was re-named Odeon on 4th February 1941.

Taken over by an independent operator on 22nd March 1959, it was re-named Regal Cinema. The Regal Cinema was closed on 24th March 1985 and was demolished later in 1985. Offices named Regal House were built on the site.
