    This was an interesting one, in pretty bad shape but with the usual 'good bits' to make up for it. The stalls have been converted to a bingo hall and the circle houses 2 small cinema screens, one of which is now an open air cinema! The hardest part of the explore was getting there, i got stuck in the snow twice and ended up having to walk nearly a mile to get there, plenty of snow inside too!

    A little stolen history:

    'Stardust' must have been its last name before closure.

    The ochestra pit had been lost during the bingo conversion but someone has ripped off some of the bording revealing some of the original seats and other tat that must have been chucked down there as a primitive form of landfill!

    After for some reason never going in the ABC in Leicester it was good to finally explore a cinema. Its a shame its been smashed, burned and has extensive water damage, but was still good. I think before it was chavved it must have been great. Even bits of the projectors were still there, but someone had smashed them on the floor :(
