Thomas Crown Affair Premiere at Edinburgh Odeon Cinema, Clerk Street


By Robert Alstead - Posted on 09 June 2009

Pierce Brosnan and Rene Russo arrive at the European premiere of The Thomas Crown Affair. As with other Edinburgh Film Festival galas, this 1999 premiere was at the Odeon cinema on Clerk Street.

Also, appearing are a number of entertainers from Scotland and South of the border. The Odeon cinema, which opened in 1930 closed in 2003 and at time of writing campaigners are trying to stop its conversion into a boutique hotel.

it's a pity the EIFF can't hold its galas here today. Cineworld, the cineplex that has become the main venue for red carpet galas, is too much like opening in a parking lot.

The future of the former Odeon Cinema on Clerk Street is still up in the air as I write, but the campaign to save the cinema may yet succeed.
