Bournemouth's hated IMAX building to be 'demolished' for Arts by the Sea Festival
Bournemouth's hated IMAX building is set to be 'demolished' at the end of the month with a spectacular 3D image projected onto the eyesore.
The virtual demolition will play a major role in the opening of the 2012 Arts by the Sea Festival, while members of the public will be able to watch the mock demolition from Pier Approach at 9.15pm on Saturday September 29.
'The Secret Incident' will see breath-taking 3D projection mapping, lighting, animation, music and sound effects giving the impression the IMAX building has disappeared.
Leader of Bournemouth Borough Council, Cllr Jon Beesley said: "Nothing like this on such a large scale has ever been done before in Bournemouth.

"I am sure it will be a memorable moment that many local people, who have repeatedly told us how much they hate the building, will want to see.
"The Council is delighted to be able to bring this event to Bournemouth. The 'Secret incident' will signify the beginning of the end for the IMAX building and is the precursor to an ongoing, exciting events programme on the Waterfront site.
"It's also set to be a thrilling climax to the 2012 Arts by the Sea Festival opening."
Work will begin in October to prepare the dismantling of the building. A new events space has been granted planning permission and is due to be open next summer.
