    Explored with Speed, Clebby, Dave W and Joe.

    A bit of history and picture from Cinema Treasures...

    Having explored the so called'mini-screens' that were flooded several years ago, I didn't expect to find myself back here any time soon. Speed wanted to try and access the former balcony which then became 'Screen 1'. Eventually we worked it out and actually it was well worth it...

    The hideous blue auditorium, once a beautifully decorated balcony...

    Doors for the Projection Room and Rewind Room...

    Which were actually the same room now...

    Rectifier Room...

    and finally the view from the main cinema building, back towards the entrance...

    Fantastic, really well shot too. I don't think 'cloudy' white balance would have made a dent in that blue!!

    The rectifiers are a little new for my taste though ;)

    Yeah it does stink down there more than ever and it's flooded more than ever. Also, we were on the floor / ceiling above that. Imagine falling through !

    It's been so long since I was last there. The sewage problem is out of hand in that lower screen now. I've been trying to access the top screen for quite some time. Maybe it's about time I went back and gave it another shot.

    So is the Sainsburys just in what was the lobby of the cinema or did the add extra bits or take parts of the auditorium? Will the auditorium be knocked down eventually? Sorry for all the questions!

    Sainsburys is just in the lobby, it's now disconnected from the rest of the building, which appears to be all derelict.

    Haha, I kind of like the colour scheme; kind of spacey. My own bad taste maybe?...
