|Support Grows For Acton Cinema's Second Screen|
Crowdfunding campaign backed by the broadcaster Mark Kermode
Film critic Mark Kermode is urging everyone to back Acton cinema's new Crowdfunding campaign.
The cinema also featured on the Londonist's list of best independents receiving high praise: '' This single screen cinema has quickly established itself at the heart of the community, showing the latest films but also serving as a meetup spot, with a café/lounge run by family-owned local business Bears Ice Cream.''
Now a new Spacehive campaign has been launched because a second screen is needed to show more films and host more events and Mark Kermode says he's proud to support it and wants others to do so too.
He says, ''It's absolutely vital for the long term viability and financial survival of the cinema. Hopefully keeping it on the High Street for many, many years to come... I'm rooting for this cinema and I'm rooting for Acton too''.
Having only just launched, the
Spacehive campaign has already attracted dozens of backers and nearly £95,000 has already been pledged.
