The Foyer (Redpaths Furniture, New Lynn)

The New Lynn cinema closed in the year 2000, and began a new life as Redpaths Furniture. Cavernous auditoriums and foyers are ideal to display their wares. But the surprise for customers is that much of the old signage is still there: Bar, Cinemas, Tickets&Sweets, together with the filmstrip decor of a bygone era — a unique shopping experience.

Screens have gone, but comfortable beds fill the theatres, and display cases for “coming attractions” bear witness to the past.

Thanks to the manager for allowing me to take the pictures.
