Another historic MK landmark:

The Point MK: The Point was the original entertainment complex in Milton Keynes. It opened in 1985, and included the UK’s first multiplex cinema. It was originally best known for its ziggurat structure, with red neon lights connecting the apexes at each side, so that it looked like a pyramid at night.

On 6th March 2014 it was announced that Milton Keynes council had voted in favour of demolishing the point and the attached Multiplex Cinema.

This is another nostalgic MK Landmark for me in that my brother in law was involved in the electrics of the original structure and it was the location of my husbands stag night before our wedding in March 1986.
