Mostly old camera pictures, sorry! :(

History

The ABC is a grade two listed building designed by William R. Glen and Alfred Ernest Shennan for £200,000 and opened in 1931 as a Forum Cinema. The building has an impressive interior, noted as one of the architect's best, boasting Italian marble lining the walls of the foyer and second floor, the notorious 'sunburst' design on the lower floor ceiling as well as in chandelier form on the towering arched ceiling and a decorated proscenium. The building was renamed to ABC Cinema in 1971 and then split into three individual screens to show films more frequently. In 1986 it was renamed Cannon Cinema before closure in 1998. Sometime in 2016, the main hall was de-tripled showcasing the beautiful original design once more.

What a place this is! With minimal Man made decay the place is absolutely stunning (Just a pain to get any photos off, since of the zero light) I really hope this is saved!
