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'?
