Discovered today one of the hidden treasures of Wellington – the 40 seat Time Cinema in Lyall Bay.
The cinema is part museum with displays filling up every spare inch, and a small very cosy viewing room. It really is a treasure worth visiting – also ideal for small fundraisers (which was what I was attending).
The movie was the 1961 classic Breakfast at Tiffany’s starring Audrey Hepburn. And the movie was from the original reel so we had half a dozen cheesy 1960s ads (the toothpaste sex appeal one was hilarious), a brief playing of God save the Queen and then the movie itself.
I had not seen the movie before and was enchanted by the young Miss Hepburn. Her character of Holly Golightly in fact reminds me of a friend of mine. I can see why the movie is regarded as a classic.
After the movie, as it was such a nice day, stats girl and I had a nice drive around all the bays from Lyall Bay to Oriental Bay. Wellington Harbour comes into its own when the sun is out so bright.
