The turmoil which is churning up the retail sector will almost certainly mean more departures from the High Street, but there’s a flipside to that bleak picture.

And the town’s ‘cafe culture’ - coffee shops, and places to meet and eat - are starting to increase in number as leisure takes over from the shopping.

If we get the mix right, the town centre will have a new sense of purpose for many years to come.

And if we can put a cinema at its very heart, then we have the building block around which everything can be developed.

The demolition of the swimming pool creates one potential site - the frontrunner, but not the only one.

And there is a planning application going through the system which should be before councillors by August.

That gives Kirkcaldy a siteo, and consent, to present to potential operators.

The aim of our campaign is to demonstrate the support a cinema would enjoy across Kirkcaldy and beyond – Kinghorn, Burntisland, Leven, Cardenden and Glenrothes make up a huge potential catchment – to strengthen the town’s hand.

It’s a campaign which brings together the community, politicians and business – one voice with one clear message.

This town needs a cinema.
