Bournemouth Imax cinema demolition shown through time-lapse


Time-lapse video of the demolition of a structure once voted one of the UK's most hated buildings has been released.

The four-storey concrete and glass Imax cinema building in Bournemouth was criticised for blocking out sea views.

It was opened in 2002, nearly three years behind schedule, but closed three years later. The council bought the leasehold in 2010.

The authority completed the bulk of the demolition work in April and is planning to build a new seafront entertainment space on the site.
