The power functioned on the lower floors are partly into the foyer on our first visit, which is when the lit up shots were taken. If you left the lights on for more than 3-4 minutes, a loud alarm would go off so we saved turning them on to the end of our visit. On our second venture, the lights wouldn't work at all. I heard someone else went following us and got them back on again though, so I'm not sure how the situation with them truly is.



We'll start with the main highlight. Hardly anything has changed from 1939, apart from recent signs of deterioration.

A closer look at some of the seats, covered in dust.

The newer projection room. We missed the older one in the oval dome, which was definitely the better of the two.

The Playtime Popcorn machine still had bare bits inside.

I was very surprised that these goodies were still remaining. A storage room in the basement full of old lenses. I first saw this space in @meth 's report from 2009 but I never expected them to still be inside.

A few miscellaneous bits in the upper floors to conclude.

What an amazing place! Thanks for sharing. I've always been into old abandoned places, not literally alas! With this fantastic site and great intrepid adventurers,couch potatoes like me can be transported to these abandoned buildings.
