Stars Back McGuffin Campaign
ROLLING STONES legend Mick Jagger has joined a host of stars backing the McGuffin campaign to save Waltham Forest’s EMD Cinema.
In a statement he said “Cinemas and live venues like The Granada in Walthamstow where the Stones played in the early days, learning our craft on the way, are the lifeblood of our cultural history. They helped launch British popular music onto a world stage and should continue to function as places of entertainment and enjoyment. It’s heartbreaking to hear such a beautiful, important historical building and centre of entertainment is being lost to the local community. I fully support the campaign to keep it open and provide film, music and the arts for generations to come.”
Other high profile supporters backing the McGuffin campaign include actors Alan Davies, Paul McGann, Meera Syal, Griff Rhys Jones and Tony Robinson as well as musician Professor Green and writers Alain de Botton and Kim Newman. Their comments and statements can be found here.
