I think an Italian restaurant would be nice. Lewes could really do with one of those. Maybe with an overpriced deli attached, and a shop selling handpainted jugs and expensive scented candles.

As, according to Angel Property, Lewes really wants and needs a cinema how about putting it here when Woolworths moves out?

Can't envisage Bills spreading quite that far... yet.

Really PhilX?...I can. I wonder if it for sale on the open market yet,or if it is kept under wraps and offered to a developer before anyone else can snap it up.....Anyone know how these things work?

Cinema would be good idea, but I fear the premises is too small.
I would not welcome a "chain" cinema - as far as I'm concerned, the cinema in Uckfield is perfect

The Odeon cinema was further along the Cliffe and opposite the church. Next door was the notorious "Den". Not that I was old enough to go in there, of course...
Woolworths has been Woolworths since time immemorial but in its absence someone might care to open a proper newsagents since the Cliffe has just lost the one it had! Although a cinema of the Uckfield Picture House variety would be good.
In reality, it'll probably become the waiting room for a table at Bills.

I fear you could be right, Pikelet. Shame though. I pity the poor folk of the Cliff who have to plod all the way up to Wickles for overpriced scented candles and painted jugs.

How about another curry house? We've only got five at the moment. Sure we could squeeze another one in.
Or a McDonald's would make a nice change - chips for under a fiver.

Well im starting a petition for more hairdressers in the town and i think we neeed at least 3 more antique shops

Definately another hairdressers, FA, last time I saw you, your hair was a mess. How about a hairdressers, which also has a section which sells string and slippers, incorporating a cafe area where you could also buy antiques?

Hi pikeket
What was this "notorious" Den then? A dangerous crackhead habitation in the days before Lewes got £63 balls of rope shops, or the troublesome sex pest from Albert Square?

MacDonalds. Or as Lewes is an old town what about a genuine replica Wimpy?

Zola had the most sensible suggestion, I'm for Aldi too! A shop selling cat ornaments is second choice. Failing all that, a post office dedicated to people posting eBay stuff to shorten my waiting time when I want to withdraw my pension at the other post office once I'm old.

I think we need a new candle shop. Candles round here are too cheap. £28 is well cheap for candles and I have too much money now Matilda and Harry are away at boarding school. You can never have enough candles. And a cafe in the back selling Marmite Sandwiches for at least a tenner.

Anybody got a bright idea as to why there is not already a full-time cinema in Lewes? Despite what is written and said regularly there is not a consistent enough demand in Lewes for a full-time cinema and that's why there isn't one.
We have been running Lewes Cinema independently within the All Saints Arts Centre (we are not Lewes Film Club by the way) for 6 years. Despite the limitation of only being allowed to hire the building every alternate weekend we screen only slightly less films than Uckfield - who have 3 screens and run 7 days a week. Despite this the limitations we have screened literally hundreds and hundreds of films over the last 6 years. Lewes Cinema survives (and thrives) because it is supported by volunteer labour and people who are committed to bringing the best in cinema to the town.
Support for screenings is sometimes amazing and sometimes v.v.poor. The audience is not anything like consistent. I have never seen a town empty so dramatically at every major holiday - half-terms, Easter, Xmas etc. The first half of this year was our worst ever and the second half was the best ever.
Comments please!

Lewes Cinema - what is the comment that you're asking for? That Mr Style will give us one if we let him build 750 tatty flats on a flood plain? That might be a step too far for some of us.

There is demand for a cinema Nullify, I just want one that shows films for more than one evening every other week which isn't always convenient.
Most people would like to open the paper see what's on and walk to
a warm and comfortable cinema.
Why can't the film club and Lewes cinema work together as we need both art- house films and recent releases as well as Saturday morning films for children in a purpose built environment. How long do we need to wait?
We also need a Tapas bar and Mexican restaurant. Fed up of Pizzas and Coffee come greengrocers come newsagents come antique shops.

Lewes Cinema - if you want to attract more people why not add your listings to the events calendar on this site (www.lewes.co.uk/EventForm.aspx) as it gets over 120,000 pages viewed every month your bound to pick up a few more customers
