Historic Dannevirke cinema set to re-open this month

From Afternoons, 1:31 pm on 12 April 2022

An historic cinema in Dannevirke is about to re-open after nearly a decade of closed curtains.

The Regent Theatre's been standing in the same spot on Dannevirke's High Street since 1919, but shut down in 2012 after structural issues and a failed lease.

Since then it's undergone significant refurbishment to restore it to its former glory, with the help of MovieFest Charitable Trust.

Trustee Graeme Moffatt joins Jesse to talk about the restoration project.
