Once a picture house before the days of Blockbusters and quite possibly a music hall. It then became a music venue and so I've been told, hosted the likes of Led Zeppelin and the Who. I've always known it to be the Hurricane Rooms with 24 hour Pool and Snooker. Unfortunately, unlike the cinema there didn't seem to be much love for saving the place. I guess it was quite an odd looking building and no doubt its inner beauty will be missed with time. Here's a few photos of the place being torn down, I don't think any of the outer decor has been saved either.
