Listed Odeon kinema hosts Zoroastrian centre

RAYNERS LANE is not the brightest spot in suburban north west London, but it is home to one of the Art Deco Odeons which still grace a few British cities.

Sorry, I am going to reminisce a little now. We had an Odeon in Aberdeen and I remember being taken there on my 7th birthday and being astounded by the decor, the furniture and above all by the organist who really did rise up from the depths and play before the main film started.

Here is the Rayners Lane Odeon, which as you can see has now been turned into the Zoroastrian Centre. ♦

BOGGARD When cinemas first started opening, they were called kinemas. Not sure when or why the usage changed. Anyone know?
