Speculate to accumulate

I am in full agreement with the person who pointed to the lack of advertising for the new cinema at the Spa theatre.

My husband and I went to see 127 Hours last week (his first film since the original Godfather!). When we pulled up outside the theatre there was nothing to suggest it was even a cinema, let alone about to show a film. In fact my husband thought it looked derelict. I know money is tight but even a sandwich board outside, and especially one at the top oppose the Royal Hotel, is better than nothing.

Compared to other cinemas the price charged at £5 a head is incredibly reasonable and we intend to be regulars and I’m sure visitors as well as locals would use it, especially on a wet, windy day. If only they know it exists.

So come on Scarborough Borough Council, if you speculate a bit you could accumulate a bit more.

When we go to see The King’s Speech it would be nice to see more than four other people in the theatre that joined us for 127 Hours.
