    Well after the meet the other day i had a day or so spare to check up on some of the mountain of derelict cinemas in south wales. In the end we checked out 13! Things didnt start too well, we got seriously freaked out by a christan in latex gloves, then escaped and did the Gaity in Cardiff which was so modernised and 'clubbed out' it isnt even worth a report! Then the next 5 or 6 after that were total teases, awsome looking but with ways in that lead to dead ends, alarms and obvious but 'night time only' access points! By the time we had made it to Swansea it was looking like a fail but after alot of persistance we made it this one.

    The Elysium has been done before by a few people and looked promising but id totaly underestimated how good it would be, not for any kind of grandure factor, simply for its awsomely retro contents and great interior designs. I loved it all, right from the round etched glass windows in the toilets to the bingo balls scattered about the floor. It closed in the early 90s but is pure 70s. The stalls are bingo'd but the seats remain in the circle seperated by the usual false ceiling. To be honest we didnt have next to enough time to explore it all, didnt even check the lobby or basements, load of nooks and crannys left to check out on return trip!
