Globe goes gospel


Share post:

The Globe Cinema, which closed its doors to moviegoers six days ago after 55 years, will reopen on Sunday.
This time, its patrons will be the congregation of the Revelation Word Christian Centre headed by the controversial Apostle T. Wayne Bishop.
“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.
Asked about those involved in the takeover of the property, Bishop would only say: “We have a great vision for this location and we are looking at the full acquisition.
“We have some good friends who share in the vision,” he added.
