This is a Horror story! The exterior of the building is just as worth saving as the interior,
You just have to look at sites where they already completely demolished cinemas without retaining any original features.
(The Gosforth Royalty.
The Queen theatre)
To see just how vacuous the these sites now are.
Gosforth still looks like it has a front tooth removed,
And the tacky pastiche were the queens theatre stood is urban anti mater.
Much better to sees original features retained even if its not still used as a cinema
In London there are plenty examples of converted cinema , Witherspoon pub housed in a cinema ,
There is even an apartment store housed in inside a cinema with stalls circle screen and even the original organ retained.
But of course a cinema would be even better.
