State, Barkingside, Essex

This is the secondary entrance on Fullwell Avenue. The rear of the main facade can be seen behind.


This entrance was used when the building was twinned and became the way in for the ABC (later ACE cinema) in the former balcony area. Photographed here in Summer 1994, ten years after the cinema operation closed. The doors have since been boarded over and the former balcony area remains unused. Bingo continues in the former stalls area, using the original main entrance in Fairlop Road.
