The Thanet Times reports today that the cinema is to close because it cannot compete with Westwood Cross multiplex !!!
How do they know that when the thing is not even built yet?This is just more proof of the defeatist attitude that is permeating our town,I for one will always go to a big screen showing, instead of the much smaller multiplex screens that seem to rely more on overpowering sound levels to bludgeon your senses.
Other uses are mentioned in the article,it could be turned into a Conference Centre(already got one)or a Theatre(already got one)so it looks like Waterbridge will get it all their own way.
One other thing comes to mind,I wonder what will happen to the Punch and Judy and Escape because they seem to be the only viable businesses that are in the developers way?
Answers on a post card please.
