The theatre was on a back street separate from the main road entrance. As a result, the public had to go down a flight of steps to go through a tunnel under the back street to enter the stalls and over bridge above the back street to enter the circle. The autiorium block has now been demolished. This was a new 1930s building and not an adptation of the former theatre.

(The Gaumont down the road had the same arrangement.)

Photo uploaded of a busy King Street in the 1950’s. The Odeon, whilst only having a small Front of House, stands out owing to the very effective signage of that Company.
