Crystal Palace Cinema Campaign

The Picture Palace Campaign is campaigning for the bingo hall at 25 Church Road, SE19 to be reponed as a cinema - apparently Gala have sold the building to a large evangelical church despite an independent cinema operator also putting in an offer. The art deco building in the Crystal Palace triangle was originally built in 1928 as a cinema and the interior was designed by the renowned cinema architect George Coles.

I've set up a Pledgebank pledge (called saveourcinema) tonight, to get nine other people to send in formal planning objections when the time comes. Please publicise, and join me if you can: http://www.pledgebank.com/saveourcinema
