Visited with Turk, Dweeb, Raddog and Squirrel911.

We found ourselves in a B&B up the road, in the evening I went for a run around this end of town, checking out some places on the way. This place was open, so we came back in the morning to check it out.

And what a result. I can't believe I only have two pictures from inside. For me, it was secondary, the explore was really good, the most intact theatre I have ever seen. The conversion to a nightclub hasn't wrecked things too much...

Everyone else took far better pictures I'm sure. Here's an external shot...

After we were all done, we got talking to a guy who worked in there for decades, and hadn't been in since it closed as a theatre. I offered to show him in, just a little bit, and he accepted. He was quite sad when he saw it. If you ever read this: Write a book, please, your knowledge, anecdotes and recall of this place are amazing.
