  • "Sadly Myron is probably right.

    Cineworld haven't got the faintest idea how to run an independent cinema, and there isn't a cat in hell's chance they'll take the risk of showing some of the foreign and/or noir stuff I've seen there over the years. I can see the bar going as well, to be replaced with a dispensary for 1.5l buckets of ice topped with fizzy drinks supplied by whichever global drinks brand Cineworld have got into bed with.

    Thank Christ for the UPP."
