    I lucked out on this one a little bit but then again it goes to show the advantages of having a real interest in the places your exploring rather than just an interest in taking photos in them.

    Ive been after a row of cinema seats for the house for a while and the other day a decent row appeared on ebay for an unusually decent price. I phoned the guy up and couldn't believe my luck when he said ' "make sure you bring a torch, they are still in the cinema and the lights dont work" :thumb

    We had a few other engagements in the area so myself and Dweeb hopped in the car and ventured northward for the day. Up on arriving we were shown inside and had a chat with the owner. He intends to keep the building divided into two floors and it looks probable the ground floor will become a theatre with the upper floor being used as a dance school.. He seemed very keen to at least preserve the buildings original features even if it was not viable to turn it back into a theatre outright! After we had unbolted the seats (with a tear in eye) and handed a crisp wad of £20s over (also with a tear in eye) he was kind enough to let us have free reign of the building and take as many shots as we liked.. Now that doesn't happen very often!!
