Petition to Save the Futurist


The Futurist Cinema has featured here before. The old cinema on Lime Street was the first purpose-built cinema in Liverpool, and operated from 1912 until 1982. Since then it has been left to rot. Lesley Mulally is leading a campaign to save at least the facade of the building (the interior is probably beyond saving), and has a petition to sign to present to Liverpool City Council. Please sign it to save this important building.

  1. Fred O'Brien says:

    The case for the building to be kept for its original purpose was lost decades ago.The retention
    of its frontage as,say,a ‘triumphal arch’/entrance to a group of buildings occupying a stretch of
    new buildings between the Crown and Vines might have merit,though in the present climate even may be too much to hope for.’The Futurist Project’ could be a good name for the overall project.
    if a ‘futurist-minded’ developer can be found to tackle it.They’re as scarce as rocking-horse shit.
