Yesterday

Most of the movie theaters in New Zealand are run by the local district councils.
The Kings Theater in Stratford, built in 1917, (click here for its history), was the first in NZ to show 'talkies' and, of course, is a historic place.

On the other hand, Hawera Cinema is more modern. I can't find any info on when it was built but it was recently upgraded with some Premium seating, complete with tables, cushions and footstools (not in the photo).  


Although many films don't really interest Hubby and me, we went to see
'Yesterday' and try out the premium seating. It was a good choice and we both loved it!


I know we are among the last to get any movies from anywhere
but, at least, we get a good one now and then.
Have you seen 'Yesterday'?

wow now that is premium seating alright. Gone are the days where we would be bunched up in individual seats next to each other fighting over the armrest.

In my opinion a nice cinema with very comfortable seats. :-)
A very good idea to put small tables inbetween the seat, where to put on drinks or whatever. :-)

Nice seats. I haven't seen the movie but it is in the theatres at the moment.

I have not seen it yet, hope to. Saw Woman at War last week, that was a good film.

Nice seating for the film. I seldom see films in the theatre now.

The seating is glorious and the movie plot sounds interesting indeed! Can't even imagine a world without Beatle tunes.

I do like that double seating. Just the job for me and SWMBO, but she may not agree.

Can't remember the last time we went to a movie in a theatre. . .or for that matter even watched a movie. Living in Greece we seem focused on reading books and movies are shown in Greek, making them all Greek to me! :-)

I haven't seen a movie in a cinema for a long time. I think my last movie was Finding Nemo!

I prefer to watch movies on my laptop. I like to pause and look at the synopsis when the plot gets too difficult to understand - different timelines, parallel universes, etc!
