    The Futurist cinema was built in 1912 in the Edwardian style, as was typical of the time no expence was spared and it is located in a world heretage area, however the building is soon to be demolished to make way for new student accomodation and some more bland buildings.

    You can read more and look at some pictures of the inside, now in a very poor condition, the facade apparently according to the developers is beyond saving, or in other words is in the way, anyway here's the link to the echo

    Inside Liverpool Lime Street's Futurist cinema: Why developers say it cannot be saved - Liverpool Echo

    There is also a petition on 38 degrees, if anyone wants to sign and a facebook page, probably won't save the building but at least you can register your objections and make a comment.

    Tried every time I'm in Liverpool, always fail. I think Snapple did it waaaaay back, and it was very intact inside.

    Keep us updated!

    If you click on the liverpool echo link there's a gallery of interior pics, it looks in pretty poor condition but there are still a few gems in there, they could save some of the charecter of the place if they wanted to.

    Yep, the ABC is still empty, surrounded buy hoardings, they are trying to redevelop between the Crown Pub (On the corner of Liime St) and the Grapes (By the Adelphi) most of the shops are now closed. I remember seeing Jaws in the ABC .... shit myself for a week....

    scafolding on facade from street level too roof
    The buildings being made safe & work has ceased,
    while an appeal by SAVE to retain part or the facade of the cinema is been dealt with.
