200 officials invited to attend Paramount ceremony

The Minister of Culture for the region of Murcia, Pedro Alberto Cruz, confirmed that the ceremony to lay the first stone of the Paramount Pictures theme park take place as planned next week.

The ceremony will commence on site at Alhama de Murcia, at 1.00 pm on Thursday the 31st of May with 200 specially invited dignitaries in attendance.

The event will mark the start of works to install the required infrastructure on the 1'000'000 sq mt site, with works expected to be complete in time for the park to be fully open for the 2015 season.

The promotor and developer of the theme park, Proyectos Emblematicos Murcianos SA (Premursa) headed by President Jesus Samper, has been granted a licence to operate the park for a period of 30 years, to be renewable by negotiation upon expiry.

Oh dear. Another Murcia disaster ! Jesus Samper announced today in an interview printed in La Verdad that there is no investors as yet for the theme park, but the stone laying ceremony will go ahead. Might as well be a tombstone, because big investors have lost interest in the Murcia Region.

I would doubt it very much. I would expect that it will be local, regional and national politicians, Premursa and Paramount Executives, Investors and a handful of members of the press. I would imagine that those involved would be doing their utmost to keep the great unwashed public far away from such an event.

Will the general public be allowed to attend the laying of the first stone ?
