The projectors may have long stopped beaming images across the auditoria and the actors may have exited stage left permanently, but there remains an element of magic about the abandoned cinemas and theatres photographed by Adam Slater.

And while the thick coatings of dust and the dilapidated fixtures and fittings indicate that these magnificent buildings have been discarded as wilfully as admission ticket stubs, Slater’s images are so vibrant that the echoes of a crowd’s laughter are not too hard to imagine.
