Video: Inside the Lincoln Ritz Cinema restoration

Off The Bench gives us a tour inside the progress at the Ritz Cinema revival project on Lincoln High Street.

The non-profit organisation is looking to raise the first £30,000 of £100,000 needed to complete the project through a crowd-funding campaign and fundraising events such as exhibitions and live gigs.

They are in the second year of the project, after asbestos was discovered on the premises last year and the team had to use their entire budget to remove the dangerous chemical.

Off The Bench now raised more than £2,100 via crowd-funding and more than £600 through their original poster exhibition and sale in the cinema foyer.
