In January, after a lengthy tender process, Aberdeen City Council awarded the contract to operate The Belmont Picturehouse to their "preferred bidder" i.e. not City Screen (the current operator). So far no progress has been made on an agreement for the new company to takeover.
City Screen will finish operating The Belmont on 26th May 2011 and there is a real danger that if no agreement is in place by this date that the cinema could close to the general public.
The aim of this petition is to show the Council that The Belmont Picturehouse is a valued cultural entertainment venue within the community and closure would not only threaten the jobs of the people that work there but also affect the cultural output of the city.
We, the undersigned, call on Aberdeen City Council to make sure that they quickly come to an agreement regarding The Belmont Picturehouse that avoids its closure and ensures the continued operation of this much loved and valued cinema.
The Save The Belmont Picturehouse petition to Aberdeen City Council's Education, Culture and Sport Commitee was written by Dallas King and is in the category Arts & Entertainment at GoPetition.
