Majestic Cinemas are about to become C-Square’s new major tenant, when they take up residence in the former Nambour Civic Centre. Majestic Cinemas are a successful independent cinema company with multi-screen operations in regional NSW. The cinema in Nambour will be their first in Queensland. They are experienced in working with regional communities, and will provide a wide range of entertainment for all ages.
Both Majestic and the owners of C-Square are making a long-term commitment to developing an entertainment hub for Nambour and the hinterland.
In their other locations, Majestic’s cinemas are widely used by the communities, being available for hire for corporate and community events, special interest groups, fundraising opportunities, school and vacation care/holiday groups, and film festivals. In Nambour, a theatre will still be available as a live performance venue for the performing arts, and auditoriums will be available for community events such as school speech nights.
Majestic’s other cinemas have all been launched in regional locations in NSW over the last 13 years:
· 2002 – Nambucca Heads
· 2005 – Inverell
· 2005 – Singleton
· 2006 – Port Macquarie
· 2007 – The Entrance
· 2015 – Satwell Cinema, opening this December
Majestic Cinemas’ Chief Executive Officer is Kieren Dell. Kieren is Vice-President of the Independent Cinema Association of Australia, and was active in the industry as President for 7 years through the turbulent period of digital conversion over the past decade. In addition, Kieren has nearly 30 years’ experience in the financial services industry. Along with Kieren, the Majestic Cinemas’ senior management team is comprised of four other members as well as a number of experienced site managers.
Majestic will be establishing a team to manage their new venture in Nambour. Some existing Majestic site managers will bring the Majestic approach to providing a high quality cinema experience which is affordable, friendly and responsive to customer and community needs. Majestic will also look to work with a number of the former staff of the Nambour Civic Centre who are interested in employment with Majestic. With the increased activity from November, there are likely to be increased opportunities for staff with approximately 2-3 times the number of work hours available compared to the operations of the Nambour Civic Centre.
Majestic Cinemas have recently received some well deserved recognition for their employment and business involvement in their community. Earlier in September, Majestic won the Employer of Choice Award at the Port Macquarie Business Awards. They were also finalists for the Tourism and Attraction Award. In 2014, Majestic won the Best Small Business Award.
