We were very sad to hear of the death last week of Becky Hallsmith, the owner of the Ultimate Picture Palace. Becky was a regular customer at the market, living just around the corner, and would always make sure copies of the latest cinema programme were available at the market. In line with the ethos of the market, Becky had a woodland funeral earlier this week in Oxford. A memorial service is planned at the cinema some time in the future. Before her death Becky made sure the cinema is here to stay and, in Becky’s memory and the interest of all things local, we’d like to encourage our newsletter readers to continue to support our wonderful local cinema.
