Property developer Eyal Aharoni questions Wellington City Council's Reading Cinema deal

Wellington's controversial Reading Cinema deal has moved ahead, despite backlash and an eleventh hour twist.

The Wellington City Council's officially buying the land the boarded-up quake-prone site sits on - for $32 million.

Prominent Wellington property developer Eyal Aharoni joined Nick Mills with his thoughts on the deal.
