    Thanks to Cat for taking up my lead and going and nailing this one. Its is an exceptional theater and its quite frankly ludicrous to demolish it, theres not a single sign of it being run down really! This was probably the biggest bug bare with the place for me. It was just a bit too clean and that made the explore a bit too edgy to really enjoy as much as i would have liked. Had it have been properly derleict, not full of PIRs and potential cell time i could have spent all day in there rooting around. As it turned out i managed about 2-3 hours before finding the light switches and deciding after lighting the pace up like a Christmas tree it was probably time to leave.

    Go here!

    excellent! been waiting for someone else to do this and produce quality pics.
    It is a damn shame about it getting demoed as it truely is a mint place inside.
    we were flicking switches left right and centre but didnt find the main auditorium ones... so nice to see it all lit up :D

    Daymn, place looks like it was in use very recently and looked after to a high standard. What the hell happened?

    Its not got the greatest interior, but its now at the point there just are not any old theatre's in even a remotely usable condition

    Its been owned by the council for a while but closed about a year ago and has sat there until recently when they decided they were going to get rid of it.. You wouldn't know it tho. Its in cracking condition. The main problem with the place in my eyes is that its a bit of a mish mash of original features, 70s additions and 'modern yet out of date' bits. I think you would need to go through it and almost 'de-modernise' it for it to feel like somewhere id want to spend much time. It feels like the place is much more suited to theatre use than cinema yet the theatre lighting and those bits almost ruins it a little bit so its not clear cut what the best path would be. Still dont think you should wipe it off the face of the earth tho.

    Second shot is a beauty. There really is no need to knock this place down.
