    I know Dweeb has had his eye on this one for years and even i had been down there 3 times previously so its been a long time coming for both of us! It made a change to do a really old cinema in Birmingham, we are used to gala bingos and multiplexes out west! :p

    While on the face of it the place has been a bit messed with, its still a very interesting building. It was converted to bingo in the 60s, yet not really altered at all. The only major thing i could spot was the blocking up of the projection windows and a strange modification around the stage area that had covered the original plasterwork yet was fairly hard to spot! It had some really nice features, the seats in the circle are amazing, as is the remains of the original chandelier up there. By far the most obvious feature of the place however was the date it closed.. 1979!! Thats a fucking long time ago by derelict cinema standards and in real terms it means that nearly everything in there was of a great vintage. Old bottles all round!

    Hopefully we can get back for another look in the next few weeks, there's much i didn't get a chance to shoot. Oh and remember

    The onus of being heard lies upon the player, please make your call LOUD AND CLEAR!
