Workmen having a smashing time at Bournemouth IMAX! A £2 million outdoor entertainment space in Dorset is set to open next summer, following the demolition of a controversial cinema and leisure building. Open-air Shakespeare performances, music concerts and dance shows are all being planned for the seafront area in Bournemouth, with local dance agency Pavilion Dance and Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra already having expressed an interest in performing. Professional shows are expected to dominate the programme, but local groups will also be given the opportunity to perform.

Why was it controversial Gordon? It looked fairly new.

Before it was built you could come down Bath Hill and have beautiful views of the sea and the Purbeck Hills, as soon as it was built it blocked out all the view and that is what started the controversy. As an IMAX it got boycotted and only showed three films and hardly any one attended, it also got dubbed the ugliest building in Britain, and it has taken the last ten years to get rid of it, not being used by anyone and could not be sold no one wanted it, so hence good riddance to a big piece of rubbish,

Cheers my friend. Gordon
