Falmouth’s famous indie cinema, The Poly, has announced its closure.
The building, which was once the Falmouth Arts Centre, has closed it doors with the loss of 14 jobs. The charitable Royal Cornwall Polytechnic Society will continue.
A spokesman said: “The trading company has provided a wide range of film and live events over the past four years and has played a significant role in the life of the local community.
“Unfortunately, due to recent commercial competition and the general economic situation, insufficient income has been available to meet the costs of supporting such a venture, which has had very little public subsidy.’
We don’t know if there will be a Save The Poly campaign.
