A few months ago, I went to watch a film at the Roxy Cinema in Miramar, Wellington. This cinema has been lovingly restored in the Art Deco style, at least partly thanks to Peter Jackson as it was his childhood haunt (hence the memorabilia from his movies).
It truly is marvellous to go to a building with a bit of character for a change instead of the identikit structures we are presented with on a regular basis. And it has a lovely restaurant and bar area in it too.
I imagine this place is a bit unknown but great to visit…albeit the movie wasn’t the best.
