Dear editor, Wow, who would have thought that the closing of the local cinema would be such an emotional issue for so many people? I don't think we should speculate why the cinema closed, but realize that it may not reopen again. Times change and businesses come and go-- remember Burger King, Taco Bell and Curwood Packaging? All businesses have a lifecycle and then they're done i.e. pool halls, arcades and coal and ice delivery to the home. What seems to be the underlying issue is the growth of our town and the loss of its small-town charm and the different things that old and new residents alike want and expect Georgetown to be. While some people want no growth at all, others want to have all the amenities of a Brampton or Mississauga. Georgetown can't be everything for everyone and that is why it's what it is-- a small town on the cusp of change; like it or leave it. Perhaps the cinema's closing can be a wake-up call for all of us to appreciate the charm and service our local businesses provide and to support them whenever we can.
