Odeon cinema

I moved to Peckham when I was five years old and am now 37. I have some very good memories of my childhood. The Odeon cinema stands out in my memory very much from about the age of seven years old when my eldest brother Steven used to take me and my sister Theresa to watch the Saturday morning movies. After they had finished they used to have games and dances for the children on the stage. It used to be great fun. Jones and Higgins stands out too. I remember a doorman all suited, with a sort of top hat, who used to open the doors for the customers.
