Geoff's Review
The Focal Point opened in November 2007, in a town which hadn't had a cinema for over 20 years. When I visited it on the wet Wednesday morning in November, there was a steady stream of patrons to the cafe and the cinema, heading toward one of the 50 sessions offered every week.
The cinema is sited in the central shopping area of Fielding; an area which resembles a small English town in some ways. Free parking is a bonus. There is a strong local and loyal audience, but it also draws on an wider affluent population, including university folk from Massey University in Palmerston North. Special movie and meal deals, which include free morning tea for seniors. The Focal Point in Feilding fulfills its big city-style promise of providing "Your boutique Cinema and Cafe experience".
Film offering are primarily art house (6-7 titles weekly) and little in the way of family or mainstream children's fare (like other small, provincial cinemas, such films are often not distributed in e-cinema formats).
