Nelson is losing our money to Castlegar

I want to keep the movie theatre. I’ve lived in this town for 40 years and have gone there hundreds and hundreds of times.

I want to keep the movie theatre. I’ve lived in this town for 40 years and have gone there hundreds and hundreds of times.

Let’s keep the money in Nelson instead of sending it to Castlegar. I use a quarter tank of gas to go to Castlegar and back and can’t drive after dark.

As a child, my daughter would go to the Saturday matinee every week. I would go to the Tuesday cheap movie all the time.

I took my four-year-old daughter there to see ET for her very first movie.

Teenagers under 16 who don’t drive need something to do on weekends. Not everyone can afford Netflix or the internet.

I will never use a squash court or climbing wall, either will the majority of Nelsonites.

As a taxpayer it is not my fault the city made bad management decisions or mistakes about the movie theatre.

Please city council, keep it. I want to go see new movies.
