CHARM OF THE SIL­VER SCREEN

Lancashire Life - - FEEDBACK -

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.
