Marathon 2014 Update

Very sad to say but we have lost our regular cinema. We must bid farewell to the Hollywood Cinema as our home. Don't panic though, the Hollywood isn't closing and we're not homeless. It looks like we might head back to where it all began. Where we first saw caught films like Last Cannibal World, The Ultimate Warrior, My Name is Nobody and hundreds of others throughout the 70s & 80s. Yes marathoners.. the legendary Crystal Palace is calling to us. Come home. Come home. Stay tuned.
