Not all cinemas are equal.
For example not all cinemas have a car you can sit in if you want the drive in experience …
Nor do most cinemas have big couches you can lie on, they don’t serve wine and coffee, and they definitely don’t cook up fresh giant cookies and then stop the movie half way through to allow you to wander out and buy some for the second half of the movie … with another glass of wine.
I loved Cinema Paradiso when I first came here 15 years ago, and I loved it again today. If you ever get to Wanaka, make sure it is on your list of places to go … and try one of their cookies. Yum.
