Olympic Studios

Olympic Studios

Profile:
UK recording studios, located in Barnes, West London, UK. Recording began there in 1966, but closed in Spring 2009.
Prior to that date, it was located in London's West End, in Carlton Street, as Olympic Sound Studios.
(NOTE: for the Munich-based studio of the same name, please use Olympia Studios Munich.)

Also appears on releases as:
Olympic Studios, London / Olympic Sound Studios, London / Olympic Sound Studios.

Engineers known to have worked here:
Chris Kinsley, Dave Bridges, Keith Harwood, Roger Beale, George Chkiantz.

The Olympic building first opened in 1906 as "Byfield Hall", a so called 'entertainment centre’ that hosted a range of attractions including ‘bioscope’ screenings. In 1910 it became a fully-fledged cinema, undergoing a number of name changes over the years ("Barnes Cinema", "Byfield Hall Cinema", and "Barnes Picture House"). It was used as a theatre in the 1920s but after the Second World War it became a cinema again until 1966 when the Olympic Studios opened.

Closing in Spring 2009, in December 2013 the Olympic reopened as a quality independent cinema and restaurant, maintaining the name "Olympic Studios". The management keep the buildings' strong historical musical connections, by beginning screenings with a brief advert featuring a selection of the artists who recorded there in the past.
