A CAMPAIGN has been launched by CineCiutat in Palma de Mallorca, Spain, to raise the necessary funds to keep the cinema in business.
The movie theatre has been open for eight years and is renowned for its regular showcase of films in English. However, representatives have revealed that the cinema is now on the brink of being closed by Palma City Council if it fails to improve technical and electrical issues such as its security, sound and projection.
A spokesman for the cinema has stated that a cash injection is desperately needed where “CineCiutat is fighting an uphill battle against debt and bills where it needs help to stay viable.”
Recalling the wave of solidarity received from its previous fundraising campaign that allowed for the saviour of Renoir cinema, they added: “We save furniture and movies. We saved the original version, a bit of the neighbourhood and our roots and built a new refuge for moviegoers, called CineCiutat.”
A group of 10 movie lovers have already donated €5,700 and a crowdfunding campaign has now been set up to help the cinema “recover its dignity and competitiveness to ensure its survival in the film industry.”
For those that would like to support the cause, donations can be made at www.cineciutat.org/salvemcineciutat.
