Globe goes gospel
The Globe Cinema, which closed its doors to moviegoers six days ago after 55 years, will reopen on Sunday.

“We are negotiating the purchase of the building (Globe) in order to look at it for a greater purpose and to erect more of a cultural centre in which we would have church services,” Bishop told the WEEKEND NATION yesterday.
Bishop did not disclose the price being negotiated for the historic City property but reports indicated it could run into millions of dollars for the original movie house. In a Press report last December, the cinema’s owners indicated they would have wanted $4 million.
