Geoff's Review
Keep an eye open for Queen Street on the left once you head up Onewa Road, the first major exit on the North Shore side of the Auckland Harbour Bridge. The Bridgeway is not sign-posted but an excursion down Queen Street will be well-rewarded. This cinema is situated on a wide corner where this attractive, well-heeled street sweeps down to the ferry building (another means of getting to the cinema).
A welcoming cinema in the suburbs (if you can call the North Shore a suburb), which features mainly art house films, with an emphasis on opera and theatre on film. The french doors open wide to the street in a very welcoming manner on a sunny day. Concessions for senior citizens, with good local parking.
Film-goers travel considerable distances across for an outing to The Bridgeway and there is a loyal, local following.
The 2009 Metro Cafe Award-winning Sausalito Cafe is adjacent for pre or post-movie dining.
The Bridgeway was my mother's favourite cinema and she went there regularly up until her death at 93 years. I am not sure whether she was reassured that there was a defibrillator in the house!
The Bridgeway is linked to Rialto Distribution and The Monterey in Howick.
