CHARM OF THE SILVER SCREEN
What a joy to see your feature about the Palace Cinema in Longridge (December issue).
A week earlier I had been to a ‘Multiplex’ and what a contrast! While the staff were pleasant enough, the interminable wait for the film to start, the all-pervading odour of something that seemed no longer edible, the bleeping of mobile phones and the surround-sound of chomping, rustling and chatter made me long for the old days when matronly ladies with torches would hiss at noisy kids and bark ‘You can’t do that in here’ at canoodling couples.
Long live The Palace! As we say goodbye to one year and welcome in another, it’s natural to look back at the highlights. But it occurred to me that online life is no longer a new thing, writes Vijay Arogyasami. Our facebook and twitter accounts are almost a decade old, and the ‘next big thing’ in Google+ has come and gone in that time. While social media has its negative users, we will always share the positive things in life. It’s the same philosophy that has sustained our magazines all these years and will continue to allow us to spread the word about our great county in 2019. So whether, it’s twitter, facebook, instagram, video, newsletters or good ‘old– fashioned print’, we’ll continue to keep you informed on what’s great and good in our county.
