    Burnley Empire Theatre - July 2015

    First things first - this place is a death-trap. Simple as that. And it's quite likely to be worse now than it was when I went. But as I have a bit of an obsession about redundant old cinemas and theatres I left all common sense at the entrance. The building still shows signs of its grand past...

    Kings hall theatre southall London November 2017

    A very early start for this one. And thanks for my invite from the other 2 lads I went with @GK-WAX and @albinojay arrived here in the pitch black early hours. Luckily we didn’t have any trouble finding our way inside. We’re we found ourselves a room to wait for it to come light enough to have a...

    Theatre Varia - Belgium - July 2015

    Evening kids, another one from a little belgium trip a couple months back, got to admit the photos i saw of this place made it look a lot better than it actually was if i honest, was a little bit underwhelming, the projector is super cool, (especially as it has a tiny bit of film in it!) and...

    The first attempt to visit it two years ago failed. This summer again eight hours of driving and arrival in the middle of the night in the pouring rain. But it was worth it. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11

    Theatre Jeusette -- October 2014

    Well-known location, however rather run down compared to older photo sets I remember. We didn't spend much time there, which annoys me even more, because as seen in the other thread, there's a glorious entrance that was missed. Anyway, here's the haul... Theatre Jeusette by cerealbawx, on...
