Cin­ema revamp reaps re­wards

Bay News - - Front Page -

The Cult Cin­ema at Historic Vil­lage is reap­ing the ben­e­fits of an im­pres­sive revamp.

In 2016 it re­ceived a $180,000 makeover.

Historic Vil­lage team leader Blair Gra­ham said the cin­ema had al­ways been part of the com­plex.

“In late 2016, the cin­ema un­der­went a re­fur­bish­ment, which in­cluded a new ex­ter­nal stair­case, new roof, cladding re­pairs, front porch re­pairs and ex­te­rior and in­te­rior paint­ing,” he says.

The re­fur­bish­ment cost about $180,000.

“The cin­ema is well used for a va­ri­ety of events in­clud­ing meet­ings, sem­i­nars, work­shops, kids’ birth­day par­ties, mu­si­cal performances as well as Cult Cin­ema’s reg­u­lar movie pro­gramme, and its pop­u­lar­ity continues to grow.

“Feed­back from the pub­lic about the cin­ema has been very pos­i­tive.”
