I hate Odeon, should have had a decent cinema company, but then i doubt they would come to Hereford.
Not that it will make much difference to me, I have not been in a cinema for over 10 years and i doubt i will start now.

What a miserable lot you are, non stop moaning, nothing is good enough, whining about parking, how about walking to the cinema eh?.
This forum is full of whingers who contribute nothing to the city they live in an simply condemn everything that happens here.
Can't wait for the cinema to open, will be going, will be using shops etc and will be trying to support my local town which I love.

Couldn't care less about parking, will either pay up or park further away and walk.

Let the begs begin

fine if you got the money to pay for the over priced rubbish they call food in the restaurants. our Cinema now is over priced, how much do you think they will charge in the new one?

Not everyone can walk and buses in Hereford is a load of rubbish and over priced.
What ever, I don't really care to be honest, the place can come to a standstill, why anyone want to come and live here I have no idea.

I started work as a projectionist at the Odeon in High Town in 1949 when there were queues every evening for all four cinemas in the city. We only had one screen but five different seat prices ranging from one shilling to three shillings and sixpence. Most people arrived by bus but those with cars parked wherever there was a space on the road including High Town. At the end of each performance which comprised two feature films, a newsreel and usually a cartoon, the audience stood whilst the National Anthem was played before departing in an orderly fashion. How things have changed!
