Ian commented about Movie theater tosses texting teens on Sep 29, 2006 at 8:30 am

The sooner signal blocking devices are installed and used in theatres the better. I have sat and fumed as – in both live and film theatres – not only has a phone rung, but the person has answered the damn thing! Trouble is, if you make a fuss you are causing more disruption to the audience yourself, but those with a complete lack of consideration for anyone else ought to be made aware of how annoying these text and phone calls are.

Ian commented about Regal Cinemas on Sep 15, 2006 at 11:37 am

The Regal Cinemas closed down in August 2006 when the long-delayed opening of the multiplex took place. Bingo continues in the stalls area at present – but for how much longer.

Picture, dating from 1992 when it was the Cannon, here :-

Ian commented about Long run over for Esquire Theater on Sep 15, 2006 at 11:27 am

Its the same old story – run a theatre down, forget to replace light bulbs and the community is glad to see a re-development!

Later they will miss the facility, but by then the developers will have had their profits and will have moved on.
