Call to save Egyptian style cinema

"Conservation groups today claimed a rare Egyptian-style cinema in Glasgow would be 'completely ruined' if a developer is allowed to convert it into flats. Govanhill Picture House, which opened in 1926, is one of only five cinemas in the world built in the unique Arabian fashion and is the only one of its kind in Scotland. But Hanison Estates, based in Cathcart, want to create a five-storey development of 43 flats at the site."
