English Odeon West End

The Odeon West End, from 1930 to 1988 known as Leicester Square Theatre, was a cinema on the south side of Leicester Square, London. It contained two screens—screen 1 seats 500 and screen 2 seats 832. It was often used for smaller film premieres, and hosted the annual BFI London Film Festival. The site is on an adjacent side of the square to the much larger flagship Odeon Leicester Square.

Odeon Cinemas sold the building to three Irish investors in 2006, though continuing to lease it. In 2012 it was bought by the Radisson Edwardian hotel group and closed as a cinema on 1 January 2015, and demolished, ahead of planned redevelopment as a luxury hotel, to include a replacement cinema with two new screens in its basement.
