Inside a bizarre cinema and bowling alley abandoned after a fire killed two people


An abandoned cinema and bowling alley was ravaged by a fire in 2016, which tragically killed two people. It had been left in ruins until a curious explorer ventured inside

The building in Bangkok, the Thai capital, has fallen into disrepair

There’s just something about the abandoned buildings that gives it an extra eerie feel, which is certainly the case for a deserted movie theater and bowling alley.

The site in Bangkok, the Thai capital, was abandoned and discredited after a fire tore through the building in 2016.

The fire unfortunately killed two people and injured three.

But, still driven by a morbid fascination, images from inside the unoccupied building have since emerged.

Urban explorer Dax Ward was told of the supposedly haunted location by a paranormal investigator.

Still driven by the humanities penchant for morbid fascination, Dax, 40, from Arkansas, USA, took a series of photos from inside the building six years after the fateful event.

He shared a series of disturbing images, detailing what remains of the once bustling complex, now left to rot, ruin and ransack.

Dax said: “I believe the complex opened in the 90s, and in addition to the multi-screen cinema and bowling, there were also restaurants, shops and an immigration service office.

“I was surprised how run down the place had become in just six years of closure. A constant stream of thieves and vandals had a lot to do with it, as did the fire.”

He added: “The thieves got away with absolutely everything of value, even the cushions for the cinema seats.

“The building was pitch black in most places, but there was an area at the back that had purple stickers on the exterior windows, which bathed the interior in exquisite purple light.

“It changed the interior aesthetic and vibe from a small area to something ethereal.

“Finding beauty among decadence and misery is always a goal for me when exploring.”

“I like to imagine what an abandoned place looked like before it was.

“It wasn’t hard to imagine that it was filled with the smell of popcorn and the sound of bowling.”
