Volunteers armed with brushes and paint rollers gave Oban’s Phoenix Cinema a face lift.

Saturday saw a band of dedicated helpers and staff giving up their free time to freshen up the inside of the non-profitdifficu community owned cinema in George Street.

The cinema has launched a Facebook appeal for funds and volunteers to get it into shape.

Trouble sprang after the roof a recent. Work is still needed on the roof but in the meantime efforts at the weekend concentrated on the foyer.

Jennie Larney wanted to say a big thank you to everyone who turned up at the weekend, with a special mention to David Nichol from Oban’s Specsavers who did all the preparation work before the redecorating could begin.

Oban councillor Jim Lynch was also one of the volunteer decorators.

Anyone who can donate money, time or skills should contact the cinema on Facebook or just call in. Help is also needed to update the toilets.
