The Explore
This was a revisit for all of us, heard the place was open again and had been over 12 months since we'd seen it and heard it wasn't doing well so thought we'd pop in and have one last look... sadly this place seems to be way beyond saving now and surely will fall down if its not pulled down soon.. Hope the pics give an idea of what its looking like now anyway

The History
Originally called the Empire Theatre of Varieties, this theatre opened in Burnley in 1894 with capacity to seat 1935 people. Funded by the Directors of the Victoria Opera House Limited.
In 1995 the building became abandoned and has rapidly deteriorated both internally and externally. In 2013 it was reported that the owners of the Empire Theatre were given 8 weeks to make emergency repairs mainly to the exterior which was thought to be at risk of partial collapse onto nearby footpaths. However it does not appear that anyone from the Lancashire Theatre Company (the registered owners) have come forward to claim ownership.
