What happened to the Gunghalin Cinema that Meegan FitzHarris promised?

It wasn’t announced that long ago. Will be a while yet I would think. More so that in keeping with the aesthetics of the sorts of buildings going up in Canberra nowday’s, it will be caught up inside the bureaucracy as they try to make it look as ugly and sterile as possible……

“Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens”

Must have flopped more than we thought? How’d they manage to get a licence to show these and be able to make money selling it off at $5 a ticket?

Its the kind of price you’d expect to pay if someone got a Blu-ray and decided to screen it.

The last news article about that on here and in the Canberra times explains it all.

Or is this an election related question?
