Situated on the busy London Road South, this building dates back to the late 1930's. It once was a cinema hence the name but Its not a cinema anymore and i don’t think it has been for many years. Over the last 20 years or so it has been a nightclub a restaurant and a bar. The building has been closed for about 8 years.

I’ve travelled past this building many times over the years, it hasn’t been of interest to me until I discovered this forum and got interested in Urbex. A lot of local places I’ve considered going to have already been explored and posted on forums... I couldn’t find any traces of this building anywhere, so its good to know that I’m the first to post it (i think!)

Also this is my first explore so sorry about the number of pictures. I just wanted to try and capture everything I saw. The building was definitely a nightclub last, it has 3 floors and a hell of a lot of rooms filled with interesting crap. I was surprised how untouched most of the interior was, half of it was perfect and then half of it was pretty messed up. None of the electrics or lights worked except for two freezers we found in a small room, they were still
on and everything was still frozen!!

Had a really good visit anyway, I definitely recommend!

Oh and this was a night visit, entry in the day would be pretty hard.
