I see that there is still a chance of saving the Odeon cinema. The Scotsman reports:
NINE politicians have signed up to support the campaign to save the former Odeon cinema.
The MSPs and MPs joined forces by putting their name to an open letter sent to the city council by Southside Community Council, which is fighting for the historic B-listed building to be restored and reopened as a cinema and arts venue.
Well done to those politicians. I remember the Odeon as the New Vic, an establishment I used to patronise in the 1950s on a Saturday morning to watch such deathless movies as starred Hopalong Cassidy and Roy Rodgers, and of course the incomparable Flash Gordon. Those were the days!

No, I don't go to the flicks these days - much easier to watch a DVD.
