Cinema In A Class Of Its Own To Open At SKYCITY

Media Release for Immediate Publication

Gold Class - Cinema In A Class Of Its Own To Open At Village SKYCITY Cinemas, Queen St, Auckland

The ultimate cinema experience - Gold Class - is coming to New Zealand at Village SKYCITY Metro in Queen Street, Auckland, from December 2005.

Before the end of the year, cinema-goers at Village SKYCITY Cinemas in Queen Street, will be able to experience a New Zealand first - two Gold Class Cinema auditoria, one with 30 seats and one with 40 seats, complete with full-sized movie screens, waiters and a fully licensed bar.

Complete with sweeping wall-to-wall screens and superb state-of-the-art digital surround sound, Gold Class is more like relaxing in the comfort of your own private luxury theatrette. Electrically operated, fully reclining armchairs arranged in pairs, complete with footrests, personal tables with beverage holder and wine coolers enable patrons to be waited on hand and foot.

Village SKYCITY Cinemas Chief Executive, Joe Moodabe, says that the launch of Gold Class cinemas in New Zealand is one of the most exciting developments in the New Zealand cinema industry for a long time. Village Cinemas in Melbourne currently feature Gold Class cinemas and they are popular with a wide range of cinema-goers.

"The Gold Class experience is a unlike anything else currently offered in New Zealand," says Mr Moodabe.

"You will find the traditional movie fare like popcorn and soft drinks, but there are other delicious items such as canapés and cocktails, dips and desserts and a full bar menu to satisfy all tastes. There's also waiter service where you can arrange to have your order delivered to your seat at a time specified by you or relax in the exclusive Gold Class bar.

"It will revolutionise the way we go to the movies, adding a new dimension for cinema-lovers and an exciting new option for entertainment-seekers looking for something a step up from mainstream offerings," he says.

"Gold Class is also ideal for corporates wanting to impress clients, or family and friends wanting an exciting new idea for special occasions such as birthdays."

"Watching a film simply doesn't't get any better than this. It's all about being spoiled," he says.

The Gold Class screens at Village SKYCITY Cinemas in Queen Street will be the first Village SKYCITY Cinemas to offer the Gold Class luxury cinema experience. The next to offer the Gold Class touch - also on two screens - will be Village SKYCITY Cinema's soon-to-be-completed, nine-screen complex at Queensgate Mall in Lower Hutt, Wellington.

Village SKYCITY Cinemas are located in Hamilton and Auckland (Broadway Newmarket, Highland Park Pakuranga, Manukau, West City Henderson, Westgate, St Lukes and Queen Street - Auckland City).

In addition, Village SKYCITY Cinemas' plans are well under way for two new complexes to be completed in conjunction with Westfield next year: a six-screen complex at Westfield Chartwell Mall in Hamilton and the previously-mentioned nine-screen complex at Westfield Queensgate Mall in Lower Hutt.

Village SKYCITY Cinemas is a joint venture between Village Roadshow and SKYCITY Leisure.
