    Myself and Ninjaboy recently climbed the bigger of the two tower cranes at One St. Peters Square, and whilst up there contemplated whether we should ever bother with the Cinema next door

    >>FFWD a few weeks and I read a recent lead/rumour that some kind of work had started on the place ?

    Hmm.. We decided to go and have a look and see for ourselves what was going on, as according to the plans work wasn't supposed to be starting until the following year

    In reality all they had done is cordon it off, remove the front canopy and nailed some advertising hoarding along the front elevation

    Eventually, we managed to muster some motivation to set about tackling this place, which was a bit of a faff gaining entry

    In the end, the majority of the snaps were taken on the phone due to CBA

    (I do have more pics, but really they aren't worth bothering with)


    The building is riddled with asbestos, as you would come to expect

    Still we managed to get in and see it for ourselves finally before it really is curtains for the place...

    Was up there a couple of weeks back, couldn't believe that the place had gone. Surprised that it hadn't been restored.
