Evil plans are afoot to transform one of the three remaining real cinemas in Edinburgh* into yet another venue for the suits of the financial district to drink crap lager while trying out lame chat-up lines on each other (equally applicable to males and females). The Cameo, for it is this honorable establishment of which I speak, was home to many a fine evening out for me. I watched many a film in the slightly run-down, but elegant theatre, often preceeded by a pint or two of good beer in the in-house bar.

As others have pointed out, Tollcross is not exactly in need of another bar. So, do with the clickety-click and save the Cameo.

*The Filmhouse and the Dominion being two other cinemas that screen films that aren't just forced on them by distributors and owners.
