Motabitz, 705-709 Christchurch Road, Boscombe, Bournemouth
building sticks out very incongruously among the Victorian and
sub-Victorian drabness of most of this part of Bournemouth, with its |
and staircase tower looking like a piece of architecture left behind
from a forgotten airport long since built on - as though it was here
rather than the other way around. I wonder what it was before the motor
spares business moved in? It's too short for a cinema.
interesting Deco buildings nearby are the massive towered frontage of
Woolworth's at 607-615 Christchurch Road (which very clearly
a cinema); and Classicist pilasters and motifs at nos.673-677, which
now house the Sir Percy Florence Shelley pub and Olives Restaurant.
