The Kilburn State - the final closing days
















I've put in here some of my pics of the Kilburn State: the alabaster cornices, the second foyer staircase chandelier, the main foyer in all it's carved marble glory and the old bingo score board.
This last pic is how most local people will have known the Kilburn Gaumont State - as a bingo hall.

Mecca Bingo have been in the State cinema building since the 1980's and have actually maintained the interior really well. This picture just reflects the state on the very last day as the fixtures were being taken down and the building was being cleared for final closure.

I was fortunate enough to get in with my camera and grab a few pictures...
