Now screening at a hotel near you Cinematic cheers: Finn's owners Nancy and Kevin Crowther, left, take a break from setting up their new cinema with ShoreLine Cinema co-owner Shane Jarrett, and Finn Crowther. By TALIA CARLISLE Finn's Hotel in Paekakariki has become a one-stop holiday desti- nation, having opened a boutique cinema'' earlier this month. Beside the hotel's restaurant, bar and accommodation, the 26-seat theatre has been two years in the making -- from when owners Kevin and Nancy Crowther applied for con- sent. It's something which not many little communities have,'' Mr Crowther said. [It's a] restaurant, bar and every- thing here to have a good night out without having to go into town and spending a fortune . . . and that's really what it's all about, getting people in here to have a nice night out.'' Finn's will work with Waikanae's ShoreLine Cinema to run the new venture. ShoreLine will source and programme the films. They've proven in Waikanae [that] they've got all the connections and they've got all the systems, which we don't have to worry about,'' Mr Crowther said. We've got a res- taurant and a bar and accommo- dation as well. So that takes all that pressure off us.'' ShoreLine co-owner Jeremy Dempsey said he had been very busy getting the theatre up and running but was happy with the set-up so far. It gives us the ability to play dif- ferent titles to Waikanae [because] it's a different demographic,'' he said. There'll be some that crossover but largely, it'll be a different palette of films.'' Mr Crowther said he had received a huge amount of support from people for the theatre so far. We just hope it helps the com- munity [and] complements what we've got here.'' Screening times will be on the ShoreLine website.
