    Went down to Grays to see if either of the two disused cinemas (Ritz and State) were accessible.

    State (the bigger one; recently bought by Wetherspoons I believe) was tightly sealed, but access to the Ritz was just far too easy. Especially with the huge police station across the road!

    And the lights were on! Didn't stay too long as I suspected someone else was inside but was still worth it.

    History from Cinema Treasures:

    Pretty happy to find these in situ!

    Yep, I thought they looked new, all plastic wrapped too. Maybe a church has the place now...
