Lights out at the Kino?
Readers may know that the Kino Cinema in Cork, that city’s greatly loved prestige movie house, is currently under threat of closure. A campaign, bolstered by a Facebook site, has been underway to save the cinema and, at the end of last month, more than 300 Kino enthusiasts attended a meeting to register their displeasure.
“I knew people would be disappointed when they found out about the closure of the Kino,” Mick Hannigan, the cinema’s respected owner, said. “But I had really no idea at all of the depth of feeling and intense wish to help that I have got from people. I had resigned myself to the Kino’s closing, but this campaign has given me occasion to think again.”
