Seniors need movie theatre in Nelson

Many of our seniors depend on this outlet for their weekly outing and entertainment.

Open letter to city council regarding the future of the Nelson Civic Theatre:

We, the members of Nelson Branch #51 of the BC Senior Citizens Association, would like to add our voice of concern over the apparent disinterest of the council to the fate of the Civic Theatre.

Many of our seniors depend on this outlet for their weekly outing and entertainment. Many of us do not have the transport to go to Castlegar and see a movie.

The Civic Theatre is part of  Nelson’s heritage and as such should not be relegated to the garbage heap to satisfy some of the negative feedback that has been and is prevalent in our community.

It’s all very well to say we cannot afford to subsidize it anymore, our taxes will go up etc., the list goes on. Why does everything we as a city support have to have a profit and loss statement attached for it to become feasible?
