Red carpet movie launch at Kaikoura's Mayfair Theatre
It was a red carpet affair at the Mayfair Theatre cinema on Sunday night with the screening of Kiwi movie Greenstone.
The event was attended by the lead actor Cele Du Plessis and director Christoph van der Bij, and producers Nicole The Boekhorst and Tim Bonekamp.
Du Plessis and van der Bij spoke to an enthusiastic audience who enjoyed the story and the featuring of Kaikoura in the storyline.
Greenstone follows the journey of a young Dutch woman trying to find her roots using a piece of greenstone given to her by her mother.
The special event is one of many the cinema is hoping to be able to feature.
Cinema operations manager Ljana Sligo said it was great to be able to cater for smaller more locally-based events.
"We hope these types of events are something the community will really get behind and enjoy."
Ljana has been joined by Bev Hurst as front of house manager.
Together, along with a dedicated committee and volunteers, they hope to be able to offer something that will appeal to a wide range of the community.
To this end, and back by popular demand, an encore of the movie Hunt for the Wilderpeople will be showing one last time this Sunday, June 5 at 4.30pm.
