    I've known about this cinema for a few months now because I seen a news report about Wetherspoons buying the property. This was a plan b incase we had issues accessing a nearby site on the same day. We had success there and thought to take a closer look at this place. After a good mooch around we were in. The former decor still exists as does the projector room. The cinema was a small and only had one screen. Mostly stripped but certainly some nice touches still inside.

    Gotta agree with Tallrich, those dark shots are fantastic! Possibly the smallest explore I've been on but it does have a certain charm.

    Really enjoyed the day and looking forward to meeting up with you guys again!

    I remember going here regularly as a child. In fact, I was at the last showing before it closed. It was 'Cinema Paradiso' (I think). Over the years, I have watched it become derelict, and for a long time I've wanted to get in, and see what it's like now. Thank you for doing it for me! I have Cerebral Palsy, can't walk unaided so would never be able to 'urbex', myself. I wanted to see it before it gets pulled about, and it's quite sad to see the state it's in, - but fascinating, too! Thanks.
