Bidding process poised to begin for Southside cinema

Bermuda's biggest movie theatre is up for grabs, it was revealed yesterday.

Owners the Bermuda Land Development Company (BLDC) has put the lease for the 400-plus seat Southside Cinema out to tender.

An advert in The Royal Gazette invited expressions of interest “from suitable persons interested in operating a vibrant and community-friendly movie theatre and entertainment complex at Southside, St George's”.

The advert said that all submissions must be received by the BLDC by Monday, November 25.

No one from the cinema could be contacted for comment yesterday — but a recorded announcement indicated it is operating as normal.

The theatre shut last summer for a time after it suffered problems with its projector.

BLDC leasing manager Ellen Joell said she would be unable to make any comment on the lease until today.

The cinema, on Southside Road, St David's, was the former movie theatre for the US Navy Air Station, which closed in the mid-1990s.

For lease: The 400-plus seat Southside Cinema is out to tender.
