Lights out at the Kino?

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - News - dclarke@irish­

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.”
