Built in 1920, what is known to be Red Hill Skate Rink to urban explorers and the local community of Red Hill started as “Pops Popular Pictures.”
In 1969, the building was then transformed into a local sound lounge popular amongst teenagers before it became a Skate Rink a year later.
Due to Arson and a fiery blaze in year 2002 the building was left to stand alone.
Its now 2019 and new renovations have started inside the building creating a cinema, a ten million dollar job.
Every building has a story, just like every art work and its unfortunate this year the building is getting demolished. I fell in love instantly, street art is amazing, being an abandoned building hunter is eye opening.
Opened in the 1959, closed in 2007 this building became abandoned and cover in local street art.
In mid 2018 the government agreed keeping the structure of the building and turning it in a multipurpose precinct.
Here is the town planners design for refurbishment of his historic building.
