Crystal Palace cinema campaign
An attempt by a cinema group to purchase a building formerly used as a cinema in Crystal Palace has been thwarted by a church group. The church group in question (who are not locally based) will now have to wait for a considerable period (while the property is unused) to secure planning permission for a change of venue purpose (which will likely be disruptive), unless local voices are raised in support of a cinema.
A cinema is a better idea for this building, in this place, at this time, for local people. Visit http://www.picture_palace.org for further details.
