(GPS: 3.15707, 101.69607) is a cinema hall along Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman
. It is at the junction of Jalan Dang Wangi
, across the road from Pertama Complex
. The cinema, built in the Art Deco style in 1936, is still operating even today, though its ground floor is given away to tenancy of clothing outlets. The building was designed by British architect Arthur Oakley Coltman1
, who also designed the Oriental Building
on Jalan Tun Perak
and the Market Square Clock Tower
The Odean hails from a time long past when going to the cinema was the thing for most people, before there was television or video recorders, and certainly no Internet. Nowadays, with such a diversity of personal recreation, the Odean Cinema continues to serve a limited niche segment of the Kuala Lumpur population.
