More movie-goers needed to keep Immingham's community cinema running
USE it or lose it!
That's the call from organisers of Immingham's community cinema, who say residents are missing out on a service that was asked for.
Studio One, based in the Civic Centre, has seen crowds dwindle since moving from the former Immage Studios site on Margaret Street.
Brian Duke, member of the One Screen group, said: "The people of Immingham asked for this facility, now people don't get involved.

"When we were at Immage we would have an average of 30 people at a screening. Now it's hit and miss.
"Why would families travel and spend maybe £50, depending on the size of your family, to watch a film when you can stay here?"
Admission is £3, with screenings in the school holidays at £2 for adults and £1 for children.
Brian added: "We also serve modestly-priced refreshments.
"It makes a cheap day out especially with the kids in the holidays."
To show the films, the group has to pay a £98 licence fee for each screening.
Brian said: "If nobody shows up we still have to pay. If people don't come we will run out of money and we will have to stop."
The group puts on films regularly throughout the year.
The next screening is on Thursday, July 26.
The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel (12) will be shown at 7.30pm.
Tickets are available on the door or through the Immingham Library.
