Save Cessnock Cinema
This petition had 1,962 supporters
In February 2013, Cessnock cinema screened its last movie just two months after the previous owner closed its doors. With the need to convert to digital and the building needing major renovations, this time the lights are well and truly out for the cinema.
Next week, demolitions will begin on the cinema.
The buildings owner, who would like to remain anonymous, has expressed sadness over the demolitions but has always dreamt of the cinema opening again. The owners have approached Cessnock council numerous times to gain funding but have been turned away as they have not seen support from the local community.
This is where YOU come in.
If there is enough support from the members of the Cessnock and greater surrounds we may be able to gain funding from the local government to re-open the cinema. If you would like to see movies again at Cessnock cinema, please sign our petition! We don't have long!
