Wahooooooo, done it at last!!! Visited for the second time this week with Alley and Jimbob.

Fourth time lucky at trying to get into this place. :D

The ABC cinema in Hanley opened as a cinema and bowling alley in 1963. It was later divided into three smaller screens in 1977. The cinema showed it's final film during December 2000.

Three auditoriums plus a secret padded-wall viewing area. The large projection room covered all the screens. A bit trashed but not badly, little water damage.
