The Nelson Cinemax is not opening soon.

Movie screen remains dark

Looks like it will be a few months yet before the city seeks proposals again on its shuttered movie theatre.

Looks like it will be a few months yet before the city seeks proposals again on its shuttered movie theatre.

City manager Kevin Cormack says they have received a report on the building’s condition but have also hired a consultant to look at all of their other buildings.

“We have decided to wait until we have the [second] report back before making a recommendation to council on what we should do with the Civic complex,” he says.

“We felt it was important to council to have a full picture of the maintenance requirements of all of our buildings and not look at Civic complex in isolation.”

The full report is expected by the end of the year or in early 2012.

The Civic Theatre closed in September 2010 ahead of renovations expected to be carried out by a new leaseholder. Only a portion of the work was completed before the lease was breached and then cancelled.
