UK - An alleged case of E-Coli in a restaurant owned by a Belfast-based cinema. The list of charges is pretty disturbing and disgusting. Read it for yourself. As more and more cinemas focus on premium F&B options, food safety and handling will only become more critical.
Belfast City Council brought charges following an investigation into diners being struck down after eating at the restaurant in Cityside Mall, York Street nearly two years ago.
Up to 170 people were believed to have contracted E.coli linked to Flicks, which voluntarily closed its doors at the time.
Allegations of failing to comply with food hygiene regulations have been brought against Mr McAdam and Ms Tolan as restaurateur and operator.
A case is also being pursued against Movie House Cinema Ltd as the owner of the restaurant. LINK
New Zealand – If you want good cinemas in New Zealand, head to Christ Church.
Reading Cinema at The Palms was named the chain cinema of the year award at a ceremony in Wellington last week, while Sumner’s Hollywood Theatre was named the country’s independent cinema of the year.
It was the fifth time the annual awards had been given out by the New Zealand Motion Picture Industry Council.
Organiser Mark Croft said the cinema of the year awards were voted for by “loyal patrons” through the Flicks.co.nz website. LINK
