In response to the recent letter about the proposed new cinema, yes I agree that it looks dated already and it is not even built yet.
However, as a film fan I would like to say that we need somewhere that will show films that are not the latest blockbusters. There are many films that we simply have to go elsewhere to see.
The cinema experience cannot be replicated, not even if the main focus of viewing films is now in the home. Okay, it may be cheaper for those on a budget, but what about those who just simply like going to the cinema.
It will be a great addition to the town, not a “white elephant”. I’m looking forward to seeing what the new complex has to offer and to be able to walk to see a film, as opposed to drive or wait until I visit friends in London!
