After forcing myself to reread the article regarding the pending closure of the Brunswick Heads Picture House, the shock and disappointment failed to subside.
The fact that a thriving and community centric business can be held to ransomed by an ignorant minority who likely have other motives is a source of bewilderment.
For the record, I have not attended the Brunswick Heads Picture House (nor am I affiliated or know the operators), but to date have only heard positive reports.
Including from those that came from north of Brisbane with the sole intention of attending the iconic venue for Cabaret Night.
If it weren’t for the operators, this venue would most likely still be derelict or worse – developed into units. Instead they have invested their money to bring the venue to life, only to be crucified by so few people, you couldn’t even call them a minority.
At the time of writing this letter, the change.org petition has over 4,400 supporters and this is from a town with a population under 2,000.
So see this for what is and ignore the handful detractors that are causing the trouble and let the Brunswick Heads Picture House operate in the spirit to which is was rejuvenated by the operators.
Let them ply their trade and let the other business owners in town also reap the benefits.
What will these detractors complain about next, the water is too wet or the sky is too blue? Narks.
