Fed up with going to the cinema in Kaitaia the community took matters into their own hands and rallied together to convert a kumera storage shed, furnishing it with old school hall benches, a home theatre system and a household freezer for ice creams.
It was basic, we didn’t mind. This was our theatre for the last 4 years but we wanted more. After hours and hours of salt of the earth donated time, grit, determination and fundraising we now have a proper cinema that has put the life back into our town.
Yes, we need to watch every dollar and yes, none of us had any experience running a cinema. Then we discovered Veezi, cinema software perfect for small operations like us. Being cloud based we didn’t need an expensive server and better still - we only pay for what we use.
Our town put in the time, and Veezi runs our theatre and keeps our finances tight … just the ticket!!
