Geoff’s Review
This is a private cinema, in a suburb close to Wellington Airport. It is also a manifestation of the owners’ love of film, where you can experience an older style of film-going (the screening schedule favours films from the 1950s to 1980s), with a mix of film and DVD projection.
Not everyone gets to build a fully-functioning cinema in their backyard!
You can get on the mailing list by contacting cinema@paradise.net.nz, to find out what is upcoming. Advance bookings are advised and tickets are very modestly priced at $8 (matinees and evening shows). You can also get to view memorabilia and tinker with a pianola or antique pinball machine.
Certainly a different film experience, with opportunities to share the enthusiasm of Time Cinema’s (motto: “yesterday born again”) creators John and Margaret Bell.

Update: John and Margaret recently passed on the Time Cinema to a new owner, who has pledged to continue their work. More info asap.
