|Notes / History||Sgt. S.G. Osmond of Mitcham Police, presents road safety certificates at Morden Odeon. Lessons in road safety were a regular addition to Saturday morning cinema.
In addition to big-screen entertainment, and a tearoom, the Odeon had a sizeable stage area, which was used for a range of award ceremonies and cabaret acts.
The soaring popularity of television led to a decline in cinema audiences.
The Morden Odeon closed in 1973 and was finally demolished during the 1900s.
The site is now occupied by Iceland frozen food store.
