Stroud Cinema - Photographs by Webmaster

As the new Stroud cinema is starting to make an impact on the skyline I have taken a few photographs of said object. I know that those in the area will have seen it but our visitor from far away may appreciate them. Or not! From some angles it looks like a Borg Cube. I was a little concerned that I may have been assimilated...

From the footbridge. Showing the scary stairs

The great workforce bolting it all together from the cherry pickers.

Dont worry the Borg only assimilates intelligent life forms.

Surely those photos are a bit out of date? The end results are impressive.

I think that the whole Merrywalks complex is a monstrosity! A "carbuncle", in the words of Ol' Big Ears. And, the very necessary 'bus station has been lost as a result of it.

The old Odeon/Gaumont building in London Road should have been reinstated as a cinema. A purpose-built art-deco cinema in the centre of town with a huge car park next door and no need to lose the bus station.

I don't see why Nailsworth can't support a cinema in the same building where it was until 1960. i.e. the "Subscription Rooms" in Bath Road.

If Wotton-under-Edge can support a cinema why can't Nailsworth?

The finished article (for our overseas viewer). It's not really that bent, I just used a very wide angle lens.

And below is the entrance.

This photo carries the trademark of Stroud, a 'To Let' sign to the right of the entrance, which applies to the main building. This photo was taken at the end of January but I think the signs are still there.

Thanks for the pics, it looks impressive. It does concern me tho that one thing has to be destroyed (bus terminus) before another can be created. I feel that the architecture in Stroud shows that, in the older buildings, there was probably a co-ordinated environment worth keeping but that was destroyed and in a disjointed manner

Maybe I am wrong but it always seems that way when I visit

Ok, history cannot be changed but hopefully, for the future, someone has thought through the co-ordination e.g the oeverall architectural plan/ that businesses must be supported by paying customers/ that the customers need to get there and either park their cars or use readilly available public transport blah blah blah

It would still be quite sensible and convenient to put the bus stops on the opther side of the town next to the Railway Station. At the moment bus passengers have to walk up into Stroud or use the lift if it is working.

Wotton cannot support a cinema. Its been shutdown at least once, I think twice, and its only been saved by the locals getting together and shouting when it closes.

I think its currently operating at a loss.

Tram car proceeding slowly from bottom of Stroud to top of Stroud gathering the aged, the mums with children, the simply fatigued, pausing every fifty metres for getting off and getting on, no charge.Bus Station by the Railway Station.

Consideration of the architecture of the past thirty years namely the new police station,the woolworths building,the multi storey car park all 'blocks' on the landscape.What might have been!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Here is our latest architectural disaster located in Stroud which you will encounter if you travel by bus. The bus stops all straddle the main road posing as a Bus Station along 'Merrywalks' which isn't very merry now at all as it is a traffic jam most of the time.

As you may gather the Stroud Railway Station is conveniently placed on the other side of the town from the 'Bus Station'.
