December 2, 2020 | 1 Comment

The City of Hamilton will host the Drive-In Holiday Pajama Jam on the top floor of the Bull’s Head Car Park from December 11th until December 13th.

A spokesperson said, “The City of Hamilton is delighted to bring its next Fresh Air Films event to the top floor of Bull’s Head Car Park. The City, in partnership with title sponsor HSBC, will host the Drive-In Holiday Pajama Jam over three nights, December 11th-13th. Permission for the event has been sought and granted by the Bermuda Government.

“Movie goers can expect some holiday classics on the big screen, free Santa hats and popcorn, a drive-through holiday photo booth as well as hear some festive jams from hot local DJ’s, DJ Rusty G and DJ Chubb, all geared to get revelers into the festive spirit.

“Friday, December 11th will feature Home Alone 2 at 7:00pm followed by Love Actually at 9:30pm. Saturday, December 12th will feature The Grinch at 7:00pm, followed by Four Christmases at 9:30pm and Sunday, December 13th, will feature Elf at 3:00pm with This Christmas screening at 5:30pm. Gates will open one hour before the first screening on each night.

“The public is reminded that entry into the event each night is with a receipt from a City of Hamilton retailer for at least $35.00. The same model for entry was engaged at the City’s official Taste of Bermuda event in October which generated a stimulus of $40,000.00 for the City’s eateries.

“The holiday shopping season has started in Hamilton and the public are encouraged to support their favourite boutiques and retailers and save those receipts for entry to the Holiday Pajama Jam.

“Those attending are asked to write their name, phone number and email on the back of their receipt before arriving at the car park to avoid congestion. Receipts will be entered into a draw for great prizes and will serve as reference for contact tracing purposes, if necessary.

“Food vendors including Dandy Donuts, Speciality Cinema, Ashley’s Lemonade and Four Star Pizza will all be on hand to appease the taste buds during the double-headers.

“Christmas is such a special time in the city and all of us at HSBC are excited to be a part of it”, shared Tanya Bule, Head of Wealth and Personal Banking & Marketing.

“We hope that as many people as possible will come out and enjoy what is going to be an incredibly exciting event. Not only will it provide a safer way for all of us to celebrate the holiday season but it also will give much needed support to Hamilton’s retailers and other establishments after an extremely tough year.”

Th City added, “No Pajama Jam is complete without pajamas. All attendees are encouraged to don their favourite festive PJ’s and if they’re not festive, just make sure they are cozy and comfortable. The City, along with HSBC, is looking forward to welcoming everyone to the event so whether it be date night or fun with the family, hop in the family car and we’ll see you at the movies.

    I do love how in Bermuda you can just show a movie in public and its cool. No worries about copyright laws at all. What makes it all worse is that HSBC is title sponsor of this event. Strangle us all with AML rules but sure show a movie you don’t legally own.

    From: https://my.wlu.edu/general-counsel/answer-center/copyright-and-intellectual-property/copyright-guidelines-for-showing-movies-and-other-audiovisual-works

    “You certainly are free to watch the movie yourself, but, beyond that, your rights are very limited by law. In particular, you do not have the right to show the movie to “the public.” In most cases, doing that requires a separate “public performance” license from the copyright owner.”

    “Note, however, that there is no general “educational,” “nonprofit,” or “free of charge” exception. Even a showing that is all three of those things will require a license if it constitutes a “public performance” and does not fall within one of the exceptions listed above. Thus, most showings outside of the class context will require licenses.”
