Film buffs in Cambridge and Bury St Edmunds are fighting to keep their local Picturehouse cinemas.
After Cineworld took over the brand last year, the Competition Commission has said the company is dominating the local market and the cinemas may need to be sold off.
Local film-goers say Picturehouse gave choice and variety often showing the lesser-known and lower budget films that aren't screened in the multiplexes. They're worried the screens could close altogether if a buyer can't be found.
The Competition Commission says half the ticket revenue in the Picturehouse cinemas comes from films which are also shown on Cineworld screens.
