Hi,

I first saw pictures of this place on 28DL but dated 2012. Then further research found a report from December 2016, showing a lot of the features still intact. We weren't going to wait around, armed with a couple of beers and cameras, off we went. I was not expecting much, especially after a recent trip to Aylesbury Odeon ended up in seeing a mostly stripped out building.

A quick scout around of the building revealed no obvious entrance points. All the ground floor doors, vents and windows are all screwed up with metal sheet. A short while later, we found a way in :)

After 12 years of sitting abandoned... the power still works. Sadly not many of the bulbs do, an interesting feature I thought were star shaped lights in the ceiling of the main auditorium. One worked out of I guess 30, I bet it looked quite nice back in the day. We also tried an experiment to light up the exterior of the building, the front entrance canopy for example. Sadly the bulbs are all gone here too.

Enjoy.

You're thinking of my report back in December ;)

Great shots mate, I went to get some new pictures a few nights back seeing as I got myself a new lens only to find the access point well and truely sealed again :(

Notice the projection room is clear of pidgeon shite though compared to my pictures?

I am mate :)

Shame they've sealed it up. Can't say I noticed, the place was still full of it!

this was a great little adventure we had, loads to see inside and was amazed when randomly turnning a light switch on to find it still had power. its such a shame building like this are being left to fall down or completely redeveloped.
