Clarification regarding proposed movie museum and convention centre

17 April 2018

The headline on today’s Dominion Post front-page lead story – ‘Jackson asks Govt for $25m’ - is fundamentally incorrect.

It is Wellington City Council – not The Movie Museum Ltd – that is seeking a $25 million contribution from the Government towards the cost of building a convention centre in Wellington.

This is in line with funding requests other New Zealand cities have made to the Government for convention centres.

The funding request is in no way linked to The Movie Museum Ltd.
