Long live Star Cinema

People have a choice as to where to donate their money says reader

I am writing in response to a letter that appeared in the Oct. 26 edition, regarding the Star Cinema.

I disagree with the letter writer.

People have a choice as to where to donate their money. There are many worthy causes. The Star Cinema provides an opportunity for entertainment at a reasonable cost in Sidney.

Many seniors and low income families cannot afford the transportation costs involved driving to one of the 20 or more theatres you mention in Victoria.

While I do not go to the Star Cinema that often, I would be very sad to lose it. The Star Cinema is a small employer, supported by many volunteers.

Again, people have a choice. The Star Cinema is not asking for government handouts.

Long live Star Cinema!
