Good thinking. The PLC also means you could buy a share or shares in the company and be entitled to attend the AGM and ask questions. Or even demonstrate. http://www.hl.co.uk/shares/shares-search-results/c/cineworld-group-plc-ordinary-1p Not sure that this would work in the Ritzy's case - as the Cineworld directors might consider giving ground at the Ritzy would be giving ground to all Cineworld sites everywhere. It did work for me in one instance. I used to live in Effra Court which was owned and managed by Freshwater Group (Daejan Holdings plc) in the early 1980s. Our lift had been kaput for months - so I invited myself to the AGM equiped with 100 shares. Mt Barry Freshwater was very accomodating over a can of Freshwater Heineken at the end of the meeting - and the lift was fixed in days. You never know until you try.
