Imax watch: how it looks today
10:06am Wednesday 20th February 2013 in News
DEMOLITION work on Bournemouth’s Imax gained momentum yesterday.
The main facade of the four-storey glass Waterfront building was ripped away to expose the structure inside the controversial building.
Bournemouth council, which bought the building for £6.5 million in 2010, expects it to be gone by the end of March.
It will open up the sea views that existed between the demolition of the pier approach swimming baths in 1986 and the construction of the Waterfront in 1998.
The space will become an outdoor events arena which will house concerts and other events. The first concert will be held at the end June.
