Save Thurso Cinema
Cinema For Thurso Group have worked since 1984 to bring cinema back to Caithness permanently, knowing that it is a viable business with a catchment popualtion of 45,000. The All Star Factory was a result of our approach to Thor Leisure in 1992 before they began trading. The 2 screen cinema is a confirmed viable cinema but was run out of business. As a result Thurso and the north Highland Region are 110 miles from the nearest cinema with the only mobile cinema thusfar refusing to come to the area. The people of Caithness want a cinema in this location where there is very little in entertainment for families, younger people and visitors to the county and are keen to have their voice heard. Cinema provides an important social function beyond simply being entertainment. It provides a focal point for the community and can attract people into the area which can provide a much needed boost to the economic growth of Caithness. The undersigned would like the recipients of the petition to understand that there is a strong demand for cinema in Caithness and the north to such extent as to make it a viable business which is important to the whole community for the socio-economic benifits it can provide. Save the All Star Factory- SAVE OUR CINEMA!
