Quote from: TP 3000 on March 01, 2009, 03:32:46 pmI think that parking is one of the main problems for the Hyperdome. As it was popular a few years ago when parking was free. But as they introduced paid parking, popularity has gone down.
Quote from: Mr Snrub on April 08, 2009, 08:00:03 pmBringing back a slightly old thread, I went to Hoyts on Monday night and it was absolutely dead in there. There was 4 other people in the cinema with us.I doubt they'd be closing down altogether but from what i saw there's definitely no real need for them to open on Monday nights!
Quote from: Canberra TimesCurtains: cinema closing to bad reviewsBY EMILY SHERLOCK19/09/2009 9:43:00 AMTuggeranong residents will be forced to travel to Woden, Manuka, the city or Belconnen to watch a movie when Hoyts Tuggeranong closes its doors on Wednesday.Tuggeranong Valley residents reacted to the news of the closure with disbelief yesterday.Many were frustrated Tuggeranong would lose its only cinema. Others were concerned for children's safety as they faced catching a bus to Woden, Manuka, Belconnen or the city to go to the movies.Helen and Glenn Jones, of Banks, said they were shocked to hear the news. They were frequent visitors to the cinema complex.''Are you serious? You are joking,'' Mrs Jones said.''I'm shocked, I had no idea this was happening. I'm very sad for the young kids living out this way ... they will now have to go all the way to Woden to see a movie.''It is bloody terrible, what are the people in Tuggeranong going to do?'' Mr Jones said, adding the cinema gave young people, ''something to do instead of running the streets''.He questioned the impact an increased number of young people travelling on buses would have.Mrs Jones was also concerned for businesses in the Hyperdome, fearing the cinema's closure would mean fewer visitors to the shopping centre.Daughters Emma and Chloe, 12, were disappointed they could no longer meet friends at the cinema on weekends.For more, pick up a copy of today's Canberra Times[url=http://www.canberratimes.com.au/news/local/news/general/curtains-cinema-closing-to-bad-reviews/1627871.aspx]http://www.canberratimes.com.au/news/local/news/general/curtains-cinema-closing-to-bad-reviews/1627871.aspx[/url]
