Every week we receive lots of requests for tickets for raffles.
We are able to donate tickets to some raffles for local schools within St Albans.
These can be requested by emailing Holly –
Please understand we are not able to donate to each request.
For customers who require disabled access to the building you can use the ramp access from the Lower Paxton Road entrance.

Please ring the doorbell and a member of bar staff will be able to let you in.
If possible let us know when you book that this is how you wish to enter the building.

Anyone unable to sit upstairs due to physical ability will only be charged for an upstairs ticket price for downstairs seating. (This excludes premium seat prices)

The monthly listings go on sale on the last Saturday of the month – depending if it falls close to the end of the month – it is sometimes the second to last Saturday of the month. We always publish our general release date online by the middle of the month.
We politely request you do not bring outside food and drink into the cinema.
We do. Films will be released online after queue has gone on General Release – this will usually be around midday.
Bookings can be made by clicking the ‘BOOK’ buttons on our listings page.

Although we have not planned specific parent and baby screenings (the building is too big and dark to advertise these)  you are always welcome to bring babies to U, PG and 12A rated matinees.

Since June we have programmed some earlier matinees from 12.30pm so parents are able to get back for the school run etc.

Buggies can be left in the foyer during the film and babies must be held in the screen, disruptive babies should be taken out of the screen until they are settled but if this is due to the film being too loud a member of staff can contact the projectionist and adjust this.

Any requests for films which parents would like to see would be greatly appreciated and can be sent to Anna –

We serve a range of snacks and sweets but have no future plans to offer meals.
We recommend the closest parking would be behind London Road Car Park.
There is also parking at the train station and the Maltings shopping centre.

When performances are sold out, we recommend you leave plenty of time to park as London Road can get very congested in the evenings.

Upstairs seating is set up in regular rows with comfy chairs and good legroom.
Rows A – G are individual seats and our back row H is made up of settees for pairs of people to share.

Downstairs there are four settees at the back of the middle tier and the other seats are set around a candlelit table like a cabaret setting.

Please view our seating plan here.

The Odyssey offers a yearly membership scheme – Advanced Booking List Membership.

The Odyssey will not be operating on any level as a venue for hire.
We will be running our own events and any events involving St Albans City celebrations. For example the St Albans Film Festival.

We admit the cinema does look and feel like a fabulous venue for which we are happy indeed. All cinemas should feel like this.

We have promised the people of St Albans – as we continue to do in Berkhamsted – a fully working single screen cinema, programmed for them, to show films everyday, 362 days a year.
