We told you at the start of the month that the folks behind Pillow Cinema had set up a month-long Kickstarter campaign to crowdfund £45,000 to reopen the old Castle Cinema on Chatsworth Road (currently an empty room above the Spar and Eat 17). And we're delighted to say that they raised all the cash they needed, and more! With £57,000, they can now buy the projector they need and get it all in motion. Pillow Cinema crew Dee and Asher said: 'Thank you so so SO much to everyone who has pledged, helped and supported us throughout the campaign. You guys are AMAZING! Now begins the exciting journey of making this project a reality.'
We're hoping to go check it out before it opens so we'll keep you posted on their progress.
