Market Harborough England bids to save cinema

Locals from the town of Market Harborough in England are attempting to save their local ABC Market Harborough cinema built in 1939. The cinema has been used a supermarket in recent years but has been empty for the past 2 years.

The campaign was started by 2 local girls both aged 11 who just wanted the town to have a cinema once more. The campaign went online at the Harborough Site where a petition was set up. Within 8 days 3,000 people signed up from the town and from all over the world.

If you’d like to save this old building see the site for update and sign up on line to help!

It certainly is hoped that it can be saved/restored as a movie theater, and even better still if it can possibly get in on the digital cinema wave now oversweeping Europe — http://cinematreasures.org/news/16934_0_1_0_C/

Update. There is now a plan to buy the site and run a 4 screen cinema in the existing buidlding, with a media college on the ground floor. Two cinema operators are interested in this and the current owners have been contacted. Details will appear on www.harboroughcinema.com as and when they emerge,
