In the most arse-about process seen in many a long day from this comprehensively arse-about government Andrew Barr has the astonishing news that he’s engaged Krnc Group to build a cinema complex in Gungahlin.
But who will run it?
I am also delighted that Greater Union, who has been such a major player in the entertainment industry in Australia for so many years, is in discussions with the developer to operate the cinema complex.
So nothing signed?
So we’re building a thing and hoping it will be suitable for someone else’s business down the road?
One imagines Greater Union, having the ACT Government completely over the barrel on this, will negotiate some extremely favourable terms.
