Happy Anniversary Ritz Cinema 01.12.12

Today marks twelve years, twelve very long years, since the Ritz Cinema closed its doors. The old girl is almost a teenager.

Sometimes it can be strangely photogenic. Can't it?

The Tunbridge Wells Liberal Democrats sent out some hardy types this morning to brave the cold and hand out some commiseration cake to passers-by and to get their thoughts on the site. They are currently running a survey on their website which only takes about 30 seconds to fill in so why not go and have your say, you never know it might actually do something.

Click here to see a few photos of the small gathering this morning on Mount Pleasant.

If you'd like to see many more photos of the site to see just how bad it is then why not pop and visit my Ritz Cinema Project.

I hope this action finally shames TWBC into getting rid of this notorious eyesore. Anything, even an empty space, is better than this mess!

Typical of the inaction one has come to expect from the Tory led council over the years.

  • I am a spritely 30-something living with my beautiful wife in the most fabulous town in the entire world, Royal Tunbridge Wells.

    We love to soak up the culture, the lifestyle, the nature, the history, the people, the art, the architecture, and the countryside in this idyllic part of the Weald, and because we love our town so much we made our blogs to share it with the rest of you.

    If you have any questions, comments or suggestions then please get in touch by sending us an email or if you are on Twitter then you can tweet me at @ankertw.
