This lovely cinema was opened in 1932 with a showing of the film Emma. It is designed in the Art Deco style and loads of the original features remain inside. I was lucky enough to get in but it is now sealed again by the security company so don't waste your time visiting :thumb

The bottom floor has been converted to a bingo hall and a suspended ceiling cuts of the fabulous circle seating upstairs, all still intact since 1962:w00t. The projectors are still there and a couple of arc rectifiers but they are very old fashioned and haven't worked in a while.

A great site and a one in a thousand chance I caught it open. Loads more info on the cinema HERE

The Bingo Hall downstairs, now derelict and has been since 2003

Upstairs above the "modern" suspended ceiling, incredible.
