Largely unknown to the general public, the Cinema Theatre Association has worked tirelessly behind the scenes in its efforts to ensure the survival of The Point, collating more research and information on its development than perhaps any other.
As soon as The Point crossed the thirty year mark to be considered for listed status they filed arguably the most comprehensive defence of the buildings historic, cultural and architectural merits.
The Freedom of Information request did not return a decision letter for this application, but it’s formulaic and the answer well known – listed status denied.
These documents were made available by Historic England (HE) via a Freedom of Information request submitted on 13th January 2021. Further attempts at listed status were made over the years to follow.
