  1. A post-apocalyptic look into Granada Studios old coronation street set! I felt I had to do this one considering I am a Mancunian and all, but sometimes these expeditions don't always go to plan.
  2. The old Coronation Street Film set is currently sat, abandoned , waiting demolition. This video shows an explore of the purpose built film set at Granada Studios in Manchester. Although this wasn't the very first film set at the studio it's one of the most well known and remembered amongst fans of the popular soap. The TV show's production was filmed at this location for over 30 years until it was sold to Manchester Quays Its in 2013 to be demolished and replaced with flats, offices, restaurants and hotels.
  3. This currently serves as a Gala bingo hall but it used to be a cinema and the upstairs is no longer in use. It doesn't really warrant a proper report so I thought I'd stick it in here. I went for a nose around with extreme_ironing one evening after someone tipped me off that they thought much of the place has been disused for years. We found our way up to the upper circle which is gathering dust and has some paint peeling off the walls in places and from there we found our way inside the projection room. A couple of old projectors that haven't moved for over 40 years were a nice find. There wasn't much else to be seen in all honesty but it's a spectacular building and a real shame to see it going to waste. There were only 2 people playing bingo in the entire place on a Friday night. We shouted bingo from the balcony for shits and giggles before we left, only to find ourselves locked in. This was followed swiftly by an embarrassing call to staff down below to come and let us out. Not Pro. The cinema opened on 7 September 1931, as one of the Granada chain, and screened movies sometimes with stage shows or organ recitals until it closed as a cinema on 10 November 1973. The seating capacity was over 3000, and was often completely sold-out. Stars such as Frank Sinatra, Danny Kaye, The Andrews Sisters and Carmen Miranda gave concerts there. After closing as a cinema the building reopened as a bingo hall. BINGO! Amazing architecture An old spotlight gathering dust Dusty seats with the odd broken one..... The lost projectors Natural light coming through from the auditorium The Hall of Mirrors Thanks for looking
