Hollywood star and Tendring resident Clive Owen last night launched an 85,000 appeal for repairs to the Electric Palace cinema in Harwich (England) with a passionate speech.

Mr Owen leant his support to the cinema’s restoration, which has already attracted the backing of Sir John Betjeman, the Electric Palace’s first patron.

The cinema is currently on the English Heritage ‘At Risk Register’ and Mr Owen said that by raising the 85,000 pounds needed for the current work and carrying out the repairs it could come off the list for good.

He added: “My first duty as patron is to formally launch this appeal. We just have to raise the amount needed.”
