  • "A city of Oxford's reputation should be able to support an independent cinema. One of the reasons I pay through the nose to live here and not Swindon, Coventry, Harlow, etc is that we can support that kind of culture and not just a mass-market, chainy, Americanised version of everything.

    We're lucky to have the kind of facilities normally only found in larger cities like London, Birmingham, Manchester etc, and we should do what we can to keep them."
