The third slice in our series of cinema reviews takes us to a leafy London suburb to munch on mainstream films and a kebab

On location: Slap bang in the middle of leafy Beckenham, by the war memorial and next to Kebab Ye. Right opposite a pub that reviewers have called "grubby" and "racist". You can't miss it.
Crowd scene: Happily diverse. Teenagers, young families, couples and – when The King's Speech is on – every single pensioner within a 50-mile radius.
Back story: Originally a single-screen cinema, restaurant and ballroom, the Grade II-listed building was converted into three screens in the 1970s and then became a six-screen building when Odeon took over in 2001. The first movie shown there was The Rogue Song, notable for marking Laurel and Hardy's first appearance in colour.
Show business: Typical Odeon fare. »
