    Arrow Dreamland Cinema margate kent April 2014

    First saw this in 2010 from Obscurity and co when it was still very fresh and had power on and at the time didnt know the guys that well as i was a Noob so didnt get chance to see it,it has been looked after of sorts and work to the roof was carried out 3 odd years ago.Squatters have had their way with the place which im assuming had something to do with access.After 4 odd years of battles over ownership etc things have finally been settled and various groups are involved to get the whole complex up and running again in all its glory!!

    Thanks to the guy who posted the pics on an exploring facebook group for the mutually beneficial chat.

    Explored with Obscurity,UrbanGinger & Spaceinvader


    Brief bit of history..

    On 25 April 2008 the Dreamland Cinema had its Listed building status increased from Grade II (buildings of special architectural or historic interest) to Grade II* (particularly significant buildings of more than local interest). The Cinema, which featured a Compton theatre organ,no longer operates after it was closed in 2007 following the opening of a new multiplex cinema at Westwood Cross.

    How the place looked 4 years ago

    Entrance to the screens















    Few from the bingo hall







    Behind the stage in bingo area



    And the Not quite so grand as 4 years ago compton organ


    Sorry its a lot of images..but there is so much in there to see and even though ive spent a fair while walking round all the side rooms and below to the strong room etc i didnt take half as many pics as i could have and tried to keep the numbers down for the report

    Nice report Wevsky. Well captured and no matter how many pics people put up, we always want more

    There's always a certain kind of magic about old cinema/bingo complexes.
