This is one of the last great examples of early purpose built cinema architecture left in the UK and even if the rest of the building cannot be saved. The facade should. Sometimes the cost of keeping something so unique may seem unrealistic and keeping up with the times is the best option. However that is the sort of thinking that has left most towns and cities losing their character. Liverpool is a leading example of retaining it’s original architecture and the Futurist should also be saved. It would be the only early cinema in the city and with the right money, love and care could become the centre piece of Lime Streets redevelopment.
Think of it like this….. When this cinema was built. The golden age of the silver screen was still a unique experience for many. People sat together in pure comfort and warmth. They laughed together, cried together, became scared together and fell in love with their fav film stars together.
No other building holds so many historic moments and has told so many stories than a cinema.
Keep the Futurist for the next generations, let them enjoy her proud stature. Let them wonder about her past.
There is still time to save her. Please make the right decision. Keep her standing and telling stories.
(Followers. Please help. No matter where you are in the world. If like me you have a fondness for nostalgia take a moment and sign the petition to save this building.
