Dear editor, With a town that is rapidly being taken over by box buildings and franchise businesses why are we in such a rush to look like every other town? With the recent closing of The Georgetown Cinemas 3 many people are talking about how our town should now get a Famous Players or other franchise-named theatre. I think this could ruin a big part of Georgetown. My childhood, and many other childhoods, in Georgetown were spent in our local theatre. To see it torn down or closed would be a complete heartbreak to many of us. Our town is very unique so we shouldn't just build a new theatre just because everyone else is. Yes, I do agree that the theatre needs a fine tune-up and if possible additional theatres but we shouldn't just close it down. Our town is a town full of history from the old mill to downtown. I believe that if the current owners of the Georgetown Cinemas 3 are not up to making it as great as it can be then someone else should purchase it. The theatre has the potential to be something great and unique, which would set our town apart from other towns around us. Our theatre has something that no Famous Players has-- history-- which in my opinion is worth a lot more the flashing lights and cup holders. Sean Egerton Foreman, Georgetown
