Crop Over Stalwart challenges Freundel Stuart Regime over commitment to Kadooment: Government Should Acquire Globe Cinema
One of the challenges that face tent managers every year is a Shortage of adequate and reasonable venues.
We would like to support the motion that the Government acquire the Globe Cinema to be utilised by calypso tents and other cultural entities.
Acquiring the Globe cinema would be more cost effective option to refurbishing the now old and derelict Empire Theatre.
The Globe only ceased operation at the end of last year and therefore is more in a state of readiness for entertainment activity to be resumed there.
This venue also has a rich cultural history as it relates to live entertainment events where back in the 60’s and 70’s Jackie Opel and other local greats and international stars have also performed at this location.
So we appeal to relevant government agencies to take action now to acquire the Globe so it can be put to good use.
