This spot in Cowgate is where the Gaumont used to be, prior to it becoming the Odeon in the mid 70's.
Not much of a change to the interior of the cinema I recall but there was a bit of superficial tweaking to the outside with the addition of tiles to the entrance area.
The above photos were taken in September 1978 and the film was "Revenge of the Pink Panther", a movie I remember seeing at the time.
It looks as if the policeman is giving directions to Inspector Clouseau!
The Odeon closed down in 1981 then the building re-opened in 1983 as a bingo hall.
