'Hated' Imax building in Bournemouth on way down

The demolition of a "hated" cinema building on Bournemouth seafront has begun.

The four-storey concrete and glass Imax was built 15 years ago, but was not a commercial success.

The site will become a new outdoor events space which is expected to open in the summer.

The progress of the demolition which will see 3,000 tonnes of steel and 8,000 tonnes of concrete removed can be seen on the council's website.
