Live trials to be shown at Nottingham Cinema

Nottingham City Labour Councillor Mr B Ackander (56), has been praised for his efforts in getting the Nottingham Magistrates' and Criminal Court sessions to be shown live at a City Centre Cinema, now renamed the Majestic.

Cllr B Ackander explained: "With the Coalition Government's cutbacks, it was essential we found a way to help ease the financial burden caused by their vicious cutbacks. And at the same time revitalise Nottingham City Centre."

At this stage Cllr B Ackander momentarily cuddled his wallet, then continued.

"In the city, we have many abandoned, bankrupt, and fire-bombed premises that have not been used for months now. The old Odeon cinema, closed in 1970 being one example, and the one chosen to be used in our new initiative."

At this stage Cllr B Ackander adjusted his eyebrow highlights, then continued.

"Using all local firms, we refurbished the once grand old cinema, renaming it 'The Majestic', as that is close to Magistrate and the link would be suitable for where the trials will be shown. The Majestic, as the old Odeon has three screens, so we can show three live trials at the same time, thus offering a choice for the public to view.
"Entry prices will be from 50p for divorce proceedings, £5 an hour for mugging trials, up to £20 an hour for the murder trials."

At this stage Cllr B Ackander momentarily cuddled his wallet, then continued.

"The refurbishing work is of an excellent standard, and the builders, Ackander & Sons, have fitted Guilty/Innocent voting buttons on the side of each chair, and after the real verdict is given, the votes of the viewers will be revealed on the screen. Voting will cost up to £2 a vote."

At this stage Cllr B Ackander took a swig from his hip-flask, and wandered off to the Bell Inn, cuddling his wallet.

The luxury carpeting, by Ackander Carpet World, is thick piled, and in Nottingham City Council colours of green and yellow.

The Council's Planning Consultant, Mrs Ackander revealed the first days offerings at the 'Majestic', starting on Monday 13th February, riots permitting.
