Each Monday we post out an old photograph of Dundee on our Facebook page with the heading ‘Memory Lane Monday’. This week the photograph depicted the old Dundee Odeon Cinema in 1972.

The image conjured up nostalgic reminiscence of times gone by – visits to the Odeon Club on a Saturday, favourite childhood films, first dates…

A lot happens at the cinema, and we’re not just talking about the movie itself. The cinema is a social hub where friends and loved ones get together to escape reality for 120 minutes. Sometimes you’ll laugh, sometimes you’ll cry and sometimes you’ll just not get it – that’s the beauty of film. During that 120 minutes you can be whomever you want to be; a spaceman, a leading lady, a cowboy, a mad scientist – and that’s what makes it memorable.

So what was on show at the Dundee Odeon in 1972? Let’s take a step back in time and see:

The Godfather


Conquest of Planet of the Apes

Carry on Abroad

Woody Allen’s everything You Wanted to Know about Sex but Were Afraid to Ask

Super Fly

Fellini’s Roma


The Getaway

The Candidate

Can you name any more??? If so, please comment in the box below!
