Dreamland Poll Chance

With the listed cinema due to close later this year due to competition from the new multiplex at Westworld Chaos, the final nail has been well and truly driven into the Dreamland coffin. There've been many suggestions as to what should replace it, with the front runner currently a mix of residential and retail, plus a few old rides preserved in aspic as a sop to the Save Dreamland campaigners.

But what do you think? I've added another 7-day poll to my sidebar, with a number of choices to vote for. And just in case you have more than one preference, I've configured it so you can vote for any combination you like.

So, what are you waiting for? Get voting!

Update: Our local council are currently holding one of their marvellous 'public consultations' on the future of Dreamland. Next Monday, 10th September, they will be hosting a 'drop-in session' for two whole hours from 2pm to 4pm when you'll be able to talk to council officers, fill out a survey and have your say. Providing, one assumes, that you say the right things. The survey is, apparently, also available online on their website, but I'm buggered if I can find it.

Click here for council press release. Closing date for the 'consultation' is 12th October.

Are you sure it's configured to allow more than one selection?

Oops. Sorry about that. I've re-configured it - just tick the boxes you want and then press the 'vote' button.

Apologies to the two people who had already voted. I am indeed a right nana.

And, um, still hung over.

Not convinced its closure isn't just to allow more space for planned luxury apartments!

Has anyone informed the Cinema Theatre Association about the Dreamland cinema closing? They keep a record of what happens to all our cinemas.

They're blaming Westwood but the police have done nothing to stop illegal knock-off DVDs you can get any new release you want in Margate why go to the cinema?
