Expression Of Interest In Operating The Belmont Cinema

The Save The Belmont Cinema group has responded to Aberdeen City Council’s Request For Information regarding the potential appointment of an operator for the Belmont Cinema and Media Centre and submitted our initial proposal ahead of today’s deadline.

Our vision since the beginning of the campaign has been that the Belmont’s best chance of a sustainable, prosperous future is as a cinema that is operated and programmed by the community, for the community.

Following the conclusion of this stage of the process, we expect the contract for the cinema’s operation to go out to full tender. In anticipation of this, and informed by Mustard Studio’s feasibility study and our own recent customer survey, the group continues to build our business plan, focusing on four key pillars: film, education, community and customer experience.

We understand the scale of the challenge, and opportunity, that lies ahead in creating a venue that is the destination for film in Aberdeen. We look forward to sharing our vision for the Belmont that celebrates the medium of cinema from an educational and entertainment standpoint.
