CINEMA IN ST ALBANS: ODEON TO ALPHA
FEBRUARY 2010 CUE ACTION NOW!
Wouldn’t it be nice to have The Odeon back again?
Wouldn’t it be lovely if it were just like The Rex in Berkhamsted?
IF YOU’VE EVER SAID THIS, THEN NOW IS THE TIME TO ACT
With days to go before exchange and completion, James Hannaway, the would-be buyer of this Art Deco building, urgently needs your help. Forget any assumptions about backers waiting in the wings: we are where we are.
WHAT YOU CAN DO
• If you attended that packed meeting at The Rex on 29 November and made a financial offer you have yet to fulfill, PLEASE DO SO NOW.
• If you were thinking of making a contribution, think no more: ACT.
• Visit the website www.allaboutstalbans.com which is being used as well as that of The Rex for regular updates and for full details of the money-raising schemes on offer (brief details below).
HOW YOU CAN HELP
• For £285, sign up for first year membership of the Advanced Booking List at the restored Odeon – possible name Alpha, after the original cinema to operate on this site.
• For £1,000, sponsor a chair with your name recorded in perpetuity.
• For undying gratitude, give a donation – of any size.
• For even more gratitude, offer a loan of £2,500 upwards. Read more about this on the websites, or contact James Hannaway direct at The Rex on 01442 877999.
• Make your cheque payable to The Alpha Cinema Ltd/The Alpha
St Albans Ltd, and send, giving name, address, tel. no. and email, making clear the appropriate category, to The Alpha St Albans, The Rex Cinema, Three Close Lane, High Street, Berkhamsted HP4 2FG.
JAMES HANNAWAY IS ALMOST CERTAINLY OUR LAST HOPE
OF SAVING AND RESTORING THIS BUILDING
LET’S SUPPORT HIM NOW
