Show must go on: cash boost for Narellan United Cinemas

It’s show time at Narellan’s United Cinemas. They have been awarded 85,000 under the second round of the federal government’s $20 million supporting cinemas’ retention endurance and enhancement of neighbourhoods [SCREEN] fund. 

The fund is part of the government’s contribution towards the recovery of the arts and entertainment sector, including local cinemas.

Local federal member Angus Taylor said this latest grant would allow independent cinema operators to keep providing a popular, low cost and Covid safe way for residents to go out and enjoy a movie as part of their local community.  

“I’m pleased to announce that United Cinemas in Narellan have been approved for a grant of $85,000 as part of the Morrison Government’s $20 million SCREEN fund,” Mr Taylor said. 

“This funding will enable them to recover from severe disruption that has largely impacted their revenue streams and work towards restoring normal operations as Covid-19 restrictions ease.”  

 “United Cinemas at Narellan also received a grant of $85,000 under the first round of the SCREEN fund, so I’m pleased that we can continue to support them through what’s been a challenging time for cinema operators,” Mr Taylor said.

Administered by Screen Australia, the Government announced a second round of the SCREEN fund in December 2021 to support independent cinema operators with grants of up to $85,000 if they have experienced significant declines in revenue due to the Covid-19 pandemic. 

 SCREEN fund applications are open until April 30 – or until total funds are committed.
