Again whilst I was up here, it had to be done.

What a fabulous building though, such a shame its trashed. Entrance was rather interesting if not a little bit grim for my liking,

History copied of @The_Raw who's wide angle lens i am very jealous of, woulda came in handy,

The Carlton Picture Theatre was designed by the firm of Blackmore & Sykes and was built by Messrs. It was run by Hull Picture Playhouse Ltd and opened on 9th September 1928 with the silent film “Lonesome Ladies”.

The cinema had two entrances, one in each of the two towers on the front corners of the building. Above the proscenium was the inscription “A Picture is a poem without words”. This was a lavish suburban cinema, with an elaborate green and gold sliding dome utilising Venetian glass and housing hundreds of concealed lights. The walls were decorated with Roman marble mosaics and painted plaster panels. A Fitton & Haley organ was installed, but this was later removed to the more central Cecil Theatre and was destroyed when that theatre was bombed during WW2.

It continued unaltered (save for minor war damage) until its closure in April 1967, after which it was simply converted to bingo usage which continued as a Mecca Bingo Club until 2008.

anyway here's my pics, we were only in there 20mins or so was a quick explore this as my mates dog was left in my van and i didn't fancy returning to it full of dog turds
