Roxburgh cinema could be setting a world record

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 1:24 pm on 2 March 2020

There's a cinema in Central Otago that might just be the longest continuously running movie theatre in the world!

It's called the Roxburgh Cinema, formerly the Roxburgh Atheneum, and it's been showing films since 1897 in the central Otago town. 

Annie Kennedy from the Roxburgh Centre joins us to explain how it's still going strong.
