Happy Birthday! The Civic Theatre turns 90
Auckland's Civic theatre's seen war, depression, recession and a multi-million dollar restoration - all while hosting some of the world's biggest stars. And today it's celebrating being ninety years young. George Farrant, who oversaw its 1990 restoration says the Civic is a rare bird that's captured the hearts of many New Zealanders. He took our reporter Katie Doyle and camerawoman Patrice Allan for a tour of the theatre to celebrate its big day.
