At Thursday’s Ealing Council scrutiny meeting, Lib Dem councillor Jon Ball, quizzed Empire Boss Justin Ribbons about the reasons for Empire’s prolonged delay in rebuilding Ealing Cinema. Mr Ribbons said he was committed to building the cinema and blamed the Council’s planners for the delays. Planning officers said Empire had been slow to respond at every stage.
Lib Dem Jon Ball said: “What matters is looking to the future and not the past. Mr Ribbons needs to make good his pledge to proceed with the cinema, which is what everyone in Ealing wants.”
I think actions speak louder than words - so let's see some action Empire. And let's see the Council and Empire work together and not like children.
