The hmv Apollo opened in 1932 as the Gaumont Palace and became the Hammersmith Odeon in 1962. Designed in the Art Deco style its life began as a cinema but whilst named the Odeon it became a famous destination for live music. Grade II* listed since the 1990s it became an adaptable space in 2006 in order to accommodate larger, standing crowds. The 1932 fully restored Compton organ, used in its cinema days, is still found at the venue which has also become a favourite place for Live (and televised) Comedy events. With a mixed standing seated capacity of over 3500 and 5000 for all standing it remains one of London’s legendary venues.
