Ghosts of the Odeon

"Ghosts of the Odeon" centres on a young boy’s journey around the long forgotten cinema. Exploring from the lobby to the auditorium, he encounters echoes of the past, as iconic movies come to life.

While much of the film relies on replicating music and sound cues, it was also necessary to recreate a number of classic movie scenes. Characters including Han Solo and Indiana Jones were joined by creatures from Alien, ET, Jurassic Park and Gremlins.

The Chester Odeon is a place filled with many happy memories and "Ghosts of the Odeon" recaptures the excitement of growing up loving movies.

Filming inside Chester's Art Deco Odeon

Today Chat Noir were filming Ghosts of the Odeon in the 1936 Art Deco Chester Odeon, in the heart of the city's Northgate quarter. By late 2016, the building is due to be redeveloped into Chester's new cultural centre.
