Things are changing fast in Rangiora these days. Facades are popping up along High Street, that building opposite the Farmers’ site is zipping up and the town hall building is looking good. Sure, the Farmers site is still a bit of an eyesore, but there are some very pretty pictures doing the rounds of what it will look like one day.
But more exciting is that the Town Hall Cinema is opening on 7th March. The first movie to show there will be The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel. And according to Jeremy Stewart at Alice in Videoland (who will be running the space), the cinema will be open 7 days a week.
Ticket prices are apparently yet to be decided as are other upcoming movies. But there should be details on their website within the next few days apparently – currently it’s still under construction.
Exciting news for Rangiora, especially with summer coming to an end. It’ll be great to be able to go and see a film right here in town, instead of heading to Christchurch on those dark winter evenings.
