ONLY �1 million is required to turn the dream of a new cinema in St Albans into a reality.

Cinema James Hannaway revealed the lower figure at a packed public meeting at The Rex in Berkhamsted - the first cinema he bought and refurbished - on Sunday lunchtime.

The plan hinges upon his ability to find �3 million to fund the purchase and refurbishment of the old Odeon in London Road. But he revealed at the meeting that just �1 million was needed by January to proceed with the exchange of contracts on the purchase price.

The remainder could be raised over the next two years while building work proceeds.
