Updated: Spinola big screen moves to Tigullio parking area
The big screen in Spinola Bay is being moved to the parking area in front of the former Tigullio following an agreement between the Lands' Department and Massive Promotions Ltd.
As a result of the agreement, the company withdrew its court application for a warrant of prohibitory injunction to stop the authorities from removing the screen. The court yesterday temporarily upheld the company's request and a final decision was expected this morning.
The company told timesofmalta.com that as a result of the move they will not be showing the 6 p.m. match this evening. The next screening is of the 8.45 p.m. game.
The authorities had wanted to remove the screen after several businesses in the area complained that it was costing them business.
The St Julian's Council said in a statement that although it still believed that the decision originally taken had been the best one in the circumstances, it had no objection to move the event to an alternative site seeing there was agreement between the department and the organiser.
