    Situated in my favourite town in the world……….


    ….Is this wonderful, old school cinema which is long past it unfortunately. I expected this to be a hell of a lot worse than it actually was. Its smashed, trashed, stripped and totally pillaged but its a nice 2 hours or so.


    Info Quoted from Cinema Treasures @
    Cannon Luton in Luton, GB - Cinema Treasures

    A miserable day in a miserable town but a good(ish) explore!

    As you will see in these photos; these cinemas were “refurbished” and many of the lovely old features were hidden behind a suspended ceiling which has thankfully mostly fallen away now, revealing whats underneath.

    Such a shame to cover up all the original features with a crappy fake ceiling, looks a good mooch around Harry!

    Thanks for sharing!

    It was turned from a good old fashioned single screen cinema (where I spent many happy hours as a kid) to a new fangled multiscreen sometime in the 70's, which is when the original features were boxed in.
    Then I spent many sweaty hours as an adolescent in the back seats. I think this was the one (may have been the Odeon in Bury Park) that had double seats in the back row :))

    Wow I'm amazed this is still left in Luton, good site. The last time I was there was for Jury service and you can guess who was wasting British taxpayers money, what a dump of a town!
