A new eight-screen boutique cinema in Christchurch is now operating under level 2 pandemic restrictions after a gala opening was postponed by the level 4 lockdown last month.

Silky Otter cinema in Wigram had a soft opening on July 31 and was just starting to build momentum when the level 4 lockdown took hold.

Silky Otter chief executive Neil Lambert said he hoped to hold an official gala for the new cinema around the opening of the new James Bond film No Time To Die on October 7.

The growing cinema chain is New Zealand owned and has a two-screen cinema in Auckland as well as the new Christchurch eight-screen. New cinemas are planned in Ponsonby in Auckland, Nelson and Queenstown.

Happy Tuesday Cantabs,

The family behind a brewery born from the rubble of the Christchurch earthquakes are “in a state of disbelief” following their third win at the World Beer Awards.

Cassels & Sons has thrived in its Woolston site since the quakes struck a decade ago.

On Friday, the team woke to discover their American pale ale (APA) had been named the world’s best for 2021 at the World Beer Awards in the United Kingdom.

The small Garden City brewery pipped several well-known global brands with its third win in a row at the awards, leaving owner Alasdair Cassels​ in “a state of disbelief”.

Not bad from little old Woolston, eh?
