We are delighted to announce the next chapter of our Odyssey…

We will be reopening on Friday 24th July!
Please spread the happy news to as many people as possible.

Full listings for Friday 24th July through to Monday 31st August will be available within the next two weeks. So watch this space as we make new announcements and share our showcase of film titles.

As a team we have been busy making sure The Odyssey is a safe and welcoming environment for you, and all our loyal supporters, to return to. 

With the Covid procedures in place we will be working at a reduced capacity of a maximum of  242 seats, split over the upstairs and downstairs seating areas to ensure safe social distancing.


We’d like to say a huge thank you for your incredible support and we can’t wait to illuminate the lightbox, strike the projector lamp, roll out the cheese plates and see you again very soon.

Support your local cinema!
Why not buy yourselves a night at the flicks for when you, friends, and family are together again.

We thank our wonderful audience for supporting us so far.
We look forward to welcoming you back when this difficult time has passed.

    The Odyssey exists with the purpose of delivering you with a great cinema going experience. We respectfully ask that you consider the results of you and your guest’s behaviours toward our staff and other paying member of the audience. It is not acceptable to make unreasonable noise nor display antisocial behaviour; this includes use of phones and tablets that distract from the viewing pleasure of everyone else.
    We ask that you leave the auditorium if you have no choice but to check these devices.
    The Odyssey allows access to cinema to all members of the community. We often welcome visitors to the building with a disability, including patrons who may make involuntary noises.
    The Odyssey will not ask a disabled patron making an involuntary noise to leave a performance however we have a duty of care to understand where the noise is coming from, why the noise is being made, and what we may be able to do to assist the person making the noise. All staff must adhere to this policy.
    No buggies can be taken into the auditorium. We recommend you use a bassinet or carry your baby in a sling.
    If your baby causes a disturbance during the film we kindly ask you to take them up to the foyer until they are settled. If your baby is unable to settle and you must leave the showing we are not able to offer a refund.
    Disruptive and antisocial behaviour will be determined at the sole discretion of The Odyssey Cinema Duty Manager.
    In the event of a dispute the cinema manager’s decision is final.
    Please respect that what you may think is an acceptable level of noise is not necessarily shared by those around you.
