Movies come to Middlemarch

Films are now being screened in Middlemarch at the community's redeveloped hall.

The first movie, New Zealand film This Way of Life, was shown last week.

More than $150,000 has been spent on the hall redevelopment, which began almost five years ago.

The hall has a new commercial kitchen, and new sound and audio-visual systems including a permanently cabled data projector and large screen.

Money has been raised by members of the Middlemarch Community Centre Redevelopment Committee, mainly through commercial catering.

Committee chairwoman Lorna Williams said movies would be screened every few weeks.

''It's very rewarding seeing things happen and seeing the community working together.''

Mrs Williams said the committee's initial goals for the redevelopment had been achieved, but it would continue to support the building's maintenance and raise money for improvements
