After being tipped off, driving 70 miles, and being centimetres from
crashing into a crashed car on the M25... we finally arrived. Have
waited a long time to see this gem and was too great of an
opportunity to pass up, hence the impromptu visit back to my
hometown!

Visited with a few others so made it quite awkward to get pics
sometimes and move about but it was a great explore. This place
needs to be restored and used! Shame it's being just left here to rot
basically!

History
The State Cinema is a Grade II Listed building in Grays, Essex. It
opened in 1938 as one of the most modern cinemas of its type at the
time with seating for 2200 people. The cinema officially closed in
1988 but has held numerous events since including being used as a
nightclub, however the building has now fallen into disrepair and is no
longer in use. [Source]
