After a couple of hours or so, when everyone had eaten just the right amount of food, Mr Monkey inspected the fine stained glass in the lobby of the Ivy, sent Ms Thalia back to work, and set off back to South Kensington. On the way, he passed the Odeon and paused for a while to examine the Drama Through the Ages frieze on its front. This was designed by Gilbert Bayes, and is one of the reasons the cinema is a Grade II listed building.
