Default News reports 2024



On Thursday morning, thousands of mostly dead larvae and fry were washed up on the Albercuix beach in Puerto Pollensa.

A local resident, Iván Simón, reckons that they were red prawns. He saw some on Wednesday, but by Thursday they had spread as far as the military base.

...Fishermen in Puerto Pollensa don't normally catch prawns.

A few days ago, there were loads of jellyfish on the same beach. Currents could be causing this, the fishermen added, though high temperature is also a possibility.

Council left counting the nine million cpst [sic]

Ten years after the Pollensa Town Council unanimously agreed to buy the famous Capitol cinema for 850,000 euros, nothing remains of the nostalgia that made seven political parties (PP, PI, Alternativa, PSOE, PSM, Esquerra and UMP) put aside their differences to sign a joint purchase option in 2014. The cinema had been closed for many years,

"It is the most expensive purchase in the history of Pollença, in addition to the cinema, for which 850,000 euros were paid, the premises and a house on the ground floor were bought later. Between the costs we have already borne and what the work will cost now, the investment amounts to 9 million euros. ...
March plans to start the refurbishment work next June with the aim of reopening the cinema in 2026. The works are scheduled to take 24 months to complete, but he is aware that when it comes to refurbishment work "there can be surprises". ...

The plans to start the refurbishment of the cinema during the high tourist season has caused a real oucry [sic]. Sixty Pollença shopkeepers have just formed a pressure group against the project.
