One of the most iconic of the 1930s Odeons, and arguably one of the most influential cinema designs full stop.
A young architect at the Harry Weedon practice, J Cecil Clavering took inspiration from Germany, the USA and Dreamland in Margate when drawing up the towering fins for the Odeon Kingstanding.
Its life as a cinema was relatively short, from 1935 to 1962, and since then it has operated as a Top Rank and then Mecca bingo hall.
Its frontage was Grade II listed in 1980.
