Film fans in Witney let down by Cineworld
Updated 10:47am Wednesday 16th April 2014 in Letters
Sir – As someone who supported the Witney cinema at the Corn Exchange, I am bitterly disappointed with Cineworld in Witney.
Well, before the cinema opened, a spokesman for the company announced that as well as the usual 3-D screens which come with Cineworld, there was going to be a screen for arthouse/world cinema. But this has not happened.
No disrespect to people who enjoy Hollywood blockbusters, but not everyone likes those types of films, and when I used to go to the Corn Exchange for films which were not Hollywood blockbusters, there was always a good crowd there.
So what has happened?
I've tried getting answers from Cineworld themselves but they have never responded to my inquiries.
I am asking nicely – they are missing out on a lot of people who, like me, must go to Oxford or Swindon to watch films they prefer, even though Cineworld is only a 10-minute walk from home for me.
I feel Cineworld has made false promises to the people of Witney – that ain’t right.
