BBC TV Restoration Vote to Save & Renovate 1920’s Art Deco Cinema

I would like to draw members attention to BBC Television’s Restoration programme which aired last night.

For those of you who don’t know it’s a sort of “pop Idol” or “American Idol” for old buildings. The Welsh section of the competition featured the Newbridge Memorial Hall, a Miners institute building, complete with a 1920’s cinema. Some members may recall the interior of the was the setting for the fictional La Scala cinema/bingo hall in the Julian Kemp film “House”

For more information and some photos of the cinema, check out the Restoration website. The theater’s website also has some good information.

If you want to see this cinema win a place in the grand final heat to be fully restored, please VOTE NOW on 09011 33 22 22 and choose 2 from the recorded list. (US callers should add 011 44) to this phone number.)
