THE article by Tom Jackson regarding the Hippodrome leaves me with the uneasy feeling that all is not well.
It was clear from the start, that continuing with bingo and the cinema was not part of the Petrou brothers' agenda for the building.

Is it possible their long term agenda for the building doesn't include a future as an entertainment centre at all?
