    Not too bad.....its in the paper and on the website, one photo used in the paper of a projector.

    "It hosted the Beatles, showed tens of thousands of films and became a makeshift base for a homeless Polish man.Now the vacant former Odeon in Cheltenham has been used for a new craze - urban exploring.

    Urban explorers find their way into derelict or boarded-up buildings then take pictures to post on the internet.

    In the Odeon, in Winchcombe Street, which closed in November 2006, two video explorers found its interior had been stripped.

    But there were several projectors in the projection rooms and an ice cream machine inside the foyer.

    One message on the website says: "It's kind of sad to see it in that state now compared to how it used to look."

    Urban explorers usually target buildings at night.

    Prime sites for exploring are posted on www.28dayslater.co.uk

    Rules say that if there is not an open window or door on the target building, the explorers do not enter.

    On message boards on the website, explorers have discussed targeting buildings including a derelict nuclear bunker at Ullenwood, the Springbok and Fez Club buildings in Cheltenham town centre and even the Eagle Star tower."

    Ice cream machine?!
