The Queen is Dead: RIP Lancaster Odeon



In a previous post I snapped a shot of the old Regal Cinema (later the Odeon) lying derelict on the main thoroughfare around Lancaster city centre.

Her Majesty has gone completely now, just a crane left standing among a few remaining pieces of rubble. A big, gaping hole in the skyline, soon to be replaced by a block of luxury apartments - or so we've been told.

I managed to capture this last section of the old gal left standing on a dark January evening (24/01/10), the light thrown by my flash and accompanied by more spilling out from the Weatherspoons pub next door. Not sure whether the wreckers ran out of time at the end of the day or if they deliberately preserved this temporary monument. Either way, the Regal's last gasp was captured.
