Member for Gippsland Darren Chester said Sale Cinema had received $35,000 as one-off financial relief due to the impacts of COVID-19 on cinema operators. "Cinemas in Gippsland, especially locally run independent ones have been hit hard by COVID-19 restrictions and this financial support will help them get back on their feet and cover operational costs," Mr Chester said.

The aim of the SCREEN Fund is to support independent cinema operators who have experienced significant declines in revenue due to COVID-19

Supporting local cinemas

Mr Chester said, "While many businesses could adapt to provide takeaway or online models, cinemas faced months of closures or restricted numbers over the last couple of years. Supporting local cinemas as they recover ensures the doors remain open and locals can enjoy films."

Round two of the Supporting Cinema's Retention Endurance and Enhancement of Neighbourhoods (SCREEN) Fund is now open, with applications closing April 30, 2022. For further information visit the SCREEN fund - round 2 page.
