    Ok i dont really have enough photos for a full report yet but i think il stick some up so people know its do-able now. If anyone fancys it please hook me up, i need to go back!

    I didnt really know what to expect and to be honest im still not quite sure what to think of the place yet. If you like mint 'intactness' you probably wouldnt like it, its been messed about quite a bit! I didnt find anything that i could say was a truely 'epic find' just alot of little interesting little bits. That said if you explore because you like to explore then its awsome. A huge old building, ad-hock conversion leaving large areas of the bulding untouched from its cinema days, thigh deep flooded basements, PIR dodging, rotting remains of old cinemas, remains of 1960s bowling equipment, pigeon infested roof rooms, lazer quest sets, vintage spiral staircases, megabowl carpet... Its got alot thats for sure!

    A return trip didnt yeild as much as i had hoped, we settled for a walk about the projection booths and vast roofspace, alot of cinema arcitecture remains but it was mostly hard to photograph. Im sure im still missing alot. In the loft space you could see the wrong side of alot of original plasterwork but i want to see the right side!!

    We found the flytower was in use as a phone mast and thus was well locked and probably alarmed..
