Tired at the end of the day and wanting to just chill out, was delighted to find the Cinema Paradiso in Wanaka, fitted the bill perfectly.
Just walking into the cinema building, we were met by friendly staff, so felt immediately welcome.
Bought our tickets for the film showing, and wandered into the cinema itself and the whole scene made us laugh out loud! Two old MGs, ( I think) were sited, one on the floor and one at the top of the stairs, so patrons could go back down memory lane and pretend they were in a drive-in, and watch the film from sitting in the cars. Steps up the side of this small cinema, led to the different levels of seating, all different types of seating, from large comfortable lounge chairs covered in colourful cushions one could just sink into, to the more upright chairs if that is what one wanted. Great screen, actually had an INTERVAL! wow! you could get coffee, race to toilet etc, and come back in to enjoy the rest of the film. We enjoyed it so much, we stayed for the second film, ordered more excellant coffee, plus the famous biscuits and had a throughly enjoyable evening! A must do in Wanaka!
