I have been contacted by a cinema group that possibly might be interested in having a cinema in the Crystal Palace/Norwood area. I wrote to a group of cinemas about a year ago trying to get something done about the vacant pubs around the Norwood Junction area.
Apparently, they were looking at the Gala Bingo hall around Church Road but have lost out. They were wondering if there would be support in the area and if people would be willing to support such a venture coming to the area.
Very early days but they would be interested in hearing everyone's views. I can't at this stage give out the name of the group but would be one everyone would approve of - eg not a nasty multiplex.
well, a few doors down from the bingo hall is a grey building, boarded up with murals which used to be a cinema. I think it's ideal for the unnamed picture house you may be talking about. After all, it is the right size... or maybe not, I haven't measured it but it seems planning permission these days is easy to get...
