      Thought I'd post up photos from my visit here in April this year.
      This location is very under-valued in my opinion, it is in fantastic condition inside and makes for a really interesting couple of hours explore. The building is pretty big inside, many offices and little back rooms to be found, as well as two projector rooms (Projectors sadly gone) with 3 cinema screens and lots of other random rooms. There's also a fair amount of origenal features and detailing in the building, which is fantastic!
      The cinema closed its doors in 1999 (I think) when the multiplex odeon opened down the road at lockmeadow. It has laied empty ever since, although someone must maintain it, as it's surprisingly clean and tidy inside, and the ventilation/heating system is still on (as the bingo hall underneath share the same system)
      Apologies for the quality of these pics, they were on my old camera and were mostly handheld as I didn't posess a tripod back then!!

      Going up . . .

      Pop corn anyone??

      To the Cinema Screens

      This is Screen 2, Screens 1 and 2 are virtually identical mirror images of each other where the origenal audatorium was split in 2.


      Motors that powered the screen curtains and shuttering.

      Screen 3 was the most amazing room with the most fantastic plasterwork in the ceiling.



      And this random room, who knows what it was used for, but there were lots of period features in it, and a bloody strip light right in the middle spoiling it all!


      Random rooms everywhere with all sorts of bits in


      Some projector room equipment, but no projectors



      And a couple of images from the roof looking over maidstone


      It was an amazing place to look round, nice and warm and dry for a change as well.

      Visited during a road trip across the US late last year. Getting in took plenty of energy and ingenuity but it was well worth the effort!










      A couple of rooms hosted a very cool graveyard of technology
