      No. But they are disused - I was not allowed in to photograph those areas which were described as in "poor" condition.

      Beautiful! Well, aside from the crappy plastic marquee.

      Wah! What a chunk of cinema! Would be great to see a vintage shot - for the marquee.

      With the "high points" of the facade picked out in a contrasting colour this would look even more superb.
