I have had a lot of people in Lichfield tell me that the one thing they would like is a cinema. I had this really interesting conversation with Russell today to discuss the possibilities of how we could use Sandfields as a pop up cinema.
Regular readers will know well that I like to support community projects here on the blog, and anything that caters for the kids is particularly close to my heart – so here’s a bold and inspiring project I think we can all really get behind.
Last weekend, Russell Smith contacted me about his project to start a community cinema at Aldridge Youth Theatre, to bring films back to the local community – including Brownhills. The project would be in support of Aldridge Youth Theatre, where the screenings would take place.
This sounds like an excellent idea, and the project is building support on Facebook, and will soon launch it’s own website. Russell is also after some help with the history of local cinemas, so if you can help, please do get in touch and I’ll hook you up.
