Thursday 28 April 2011: Yes! We ARE Open!
Congratulations to the Belmont Cinema in Aberdeen who were grasped from the jaws of death this week by City Screen.
They nearly closed after a ridiculous tendering farce left their employees, customers and fans in the dark for months over its future. They were days away from closure until City Screen stepped in and saved the day.
I didn't go to the cinema today as I was out with my daughter but I made a point of going up to photograph it for my Blip just to show that when people make enough of a fuss they get listened to. Congratulations to them (and us for still having an alternative to schlock Hollywood -cock super-cineplexes)
