The Imax theatre building has been mostly empty since 2005
Voting has ended on future plans for a controversial Imax cinema building on Bournemouth seafront.
More than 2,000 people have so far cast their opinions on what should happen to the "eyesore" which blocks sea views.
The Waterfront building houses the cinema which opened in 2002, but closed three years later. Only three restaurants still operate inside.
Seven shortlisted ideas from members of the public were announced on 5 March, including parks, bistros and museums.
The controversial building was bought by the council in February from long-leaseholders Nilgosc for about £7m.
A cross-party group of councillors said their aim for the future of the site included returning the sea views and providing an "all-weather" attraction.
Seven shortlisted ideas
Interactive arts activity centre and museum
Performing arts space and amphitheatre
Family play park
Boutiques and bistros
The council's cabinet will decide in June which development will go ahead.
The authority is currently seeking a compulsory purchase order to vacate some of the sub-tenants, and says demolition will not start until summer 2011 at the earliest.
The building was constructed in 1998, opening nearly three years behind schedule, before closing in 2005 after having problems showing 3D films.
The council tried to purchase the building two years ago, but could not afford the then price of £15m.
Nilgosc has previously declined to comment on the purchase or why the building had not been redeveloped since 2005.
