    The ABC is a cracking art-deco cinema on the outside. Inside it is a mish mash of art-deco, 1960's and 1970's styles. Access has been made 20 times easier by the demoiltion crew. Demolition has started in one of the screens but not the other. There are still a handfull of original seats left, and the sound system. The bar is cool... no other way to deccribe it! The ABC was the first cinema in Leicestershire to get a licenced bar.
    Nice explore, pity it's being stripped. It was again a solo explore, and believe me it was creepy in the pitch black screen on my own! Search blaster did me proud once again with the pics!!
