The iconic Gaumont Cinema in Park Road, Liverpool, is on the market for the modest sum of £75,000.

But potential buyers need to be up to the challenge of restoring it to its former glory, as it has fallen into a state of complete disrepair.

The walls of the main auditorium are covered in graffiti, with the old cinema seats ripped out and replaced by piles of rubble on the floor.

Opened in 1937, the curve-fronted cinema was built to replace the old Dingle Picturedome.

After functioning at a cinema for nearly three decades, the building was turned into a Top Rank Bingo Club in the 1960s.

The building, which is not listed, is spread over four floors, with a basement area and plant rooms upstairs.

It has stood empty and unused for a number of years, despite being bought and resold by potential investors looking to transform the site.

An online listing from Venmore Auctions describes the cinema as "ideal for a residential development", if investors are able to secure planning permission.

Venmore opened the doors of the abandoned cinema to the public, to allow potential buyers to view the property before it goes up for auction on December 13.
