  2. This beggars belief. The Picture House is every bit as historic as the Hippodrome, Bo’ness, and arguably a more valuable asset to a community more remote than any in Scotland from other cinemas. Yet the latter got millions from the lottery while the former gets a knock-back. Where is the sense? How can these people (HLF) be made to explain themselves?

      The project board should definitely ask for guidance on how they can make their proposal more approvable – this gives all concerned a second chance.

      • As I understand it the HLF are usually very willing to discuss how to revise applications to increase eligibility; it exists to distribute cash, not keep it in the bank.
