Independent community run cinema struggling to survive, one local resident’s life changing experience
The local cinema had been the focus of a bitter feud over the weekend between the owners and residents of the block.
The owners, a family from north Manchester, claimed the cinema was being run illegally, and the owners had trie바카라사이트d to block the local community cinema by banning them from it in an unsucapronxcessful attempt to get the cinema closed.
But, as the conflict intensified, residents began to realise that the only reason the film was open at all was because of the owner’s threat, and they decided to turn it out.
At around 2am on Sunday, on an unseasonably warm Monday morning, the residents entered the movie theatre, and watched the first screenings of two titles to which the cinema had refused to show.
When the first opening, by award-winning director George Lucas, took place, the residents cheered as Lucas took the audience through what has since been described by some in the community as the opening scene from Star Wars – the first time they’d seen a movie from Star Wars.
The community members, some of whom had never seen a Star Wars title before, were thrilled when they heard there was one more coming soon, as well as the surprise arrival of the first film to be shown at the cinema since 1998, Star Wars.

‘The community are extremely happy,’ a supporter of the cinema, who did not wish to be named, told Metro.
‘The fact that Star Wars had come out just now, and the residents wanted the community to have this experience, that’s what’s been exciting.’
However, that happiness, which was shared by residents, was quickly followed by a devastating experience for the patrons in the cinema.
As the community watched the movie, they were shocked by an audio recording which showed that, a few minutes before the cinema opened, a message had appeared on their screen stating “Dogs must not enter the premises or any other area of the premises”, and they were then ordered off the premises.
When contacted by Metro, the owners did not dispute the claims they made to have restricted entry to the cinema, but stressed that there was a dispute going on within the community over their cinema being closed.
‘While community members are deeply saddened that the cinema예스카지노 has gone without running since early last week, we have worked hard and put in great effort to make sure that this will not happen again,’ the cinema said.
