DANNY BOYLE FIGHTING TO SAVE LOCAL U.K. THEATRES

Thursday, November 15, 2012 - Filmmaker Danny Boyle wants to meet with Britain's Prime Minister to discuss how government budget cuts threaten regional theatres in the U.k.

The Slumdog Millionaire director, who was also responsible for the London Olympics Opening Ceremony, is spearheading a campaign to save venues across England following the announcement of plans to slash funding from the Arts Council England.

Boyle has requested a meeting with Prime Minister David Cameron to stress the importance of a "modest but sustained investment in the arts".

He says, "The return that you get from it is incalculable. Theatre sustains local communities and does very positive things for local economies.

But it also gives a sense of belonging that can result in big expressions like the opening ceremony... What they provide is something else to believe in, and we must believe as well otherwise we'll lose it."
