Bar Med has now closed for redevelopment. It looks like the Embassy’s days are numbered, sadly :(

Are there any pictures of the interior available? I would love to have a look around the parts of the building which are no longer open to the public.

Fantastic pictures! Do you have any more? I have searched in vain for photos like these! I am particularly interested to find out what the interior was like in its original form and after it was converted. I was only 11 years old when this cinema shut, so my memories of what it was like are faded; I always preferred it to the Cineworld complex though.
Unfortunately several recent trips to Bar Med have not exactly helped to trigger my memories; I have been unable to recognise any features from when it was a cinema.
