the ornate designs of many of the older theatres.

SINGAPORE Odeon Theatre

The Odeon Cinema offers its patrons a host of amenities hitherto not known to theatre-goers in this country. For instance, there is a special booking office for car drivers enabling them to buy their tickets in advance without having to leave their cars. All they need do is to drive in past the entrance foyery lean out of the car window and make their booking.

Another unusual feature of the cinema is that the whole building is, as it were, on stilts (albeit extremely strong ones), so that the ground door area becomes a convenient and spacious car park. Should this be full, a ramp sweeps up at the back of the theatre to provide further parking space on the next story.

The Odeon is equipped with a cry room for the benefit of those parents who cannot leave their young babies at home.
