A boutique cinema complex is to be
built in Wigan St, off Cuba St.
Lighthouse Cinemas is building a
three-screen theatre that will seat at
least 150 patrons.
Co-owner Simon Werry said Light-
house Cuba would show arthouse and
film festival movies similar to those
screened at the company's Petone and
It's quite possible we will play some
films that are edgier, though,'' he said.
It will be the first cinema complex
Lighthouse has built from scratch. Its
other two theatres were re-fits.
It's an empty block of dirt at the
moment. I like to think what we can
create is fairly iconic and that the
fitout will provide some talking points.''
Mr Werry said the boom in apart-
ment living, especially in the Cuba St
area, was one of the main reasons for
building a cinema in Wigan St.
We believe there's still growth and,
even if things are slow at the moment,
in years to come we will see more
We like the Cuba quarter. It's a
funky end of town. We'll have a good
synergy with the bars and cafes there.''
Mr Werry said it was hoped the cin-
ema would open later this year.

Fabian Waenga is looking for-

Mr Waenga is joining a three-
day workshop, put on by Digital
Storytelling Aotearoa and the
Wellington Soup Kitchen, to cre-
ate his own digital story.
A visitor to the soup kitchen,
Mr Waenga became interested in
the opportunity after seeing a
presentation of what one
person's digital story might look
I suppose my greatest fear
was my ignorance of computers
and modern technology. [It's
mostly] left me behind.''
He is interested in making a
story about Maori people.
Over the past 200 years, our
[Maori] race has gone from a
pure blood, true-to-the-bone cul-
ture, to the people we are now.
In this day and age there are
no full-blooded Maori and I
wanted to do something with
that, the transition.''
Soup Kitchen manager
Philippa Meachen said the idea
to run the workshop arose after
she saw a presentation from
Digital Storytelling Aotearoa.
Thanks to some funding from
Wellington City Council, the
Soup Kitchen was able to offer
eight people the chance to create
their own stories.
She said it would be interes-
ting to see what people came up
with. It's an opportunity to
express yourself, to share a part
For some people, too, it will be
quite challenging. It can bring
up stuff that's quite significant,
both good and bad.''
Local business Wellington ITC
would also be involved, she said.
The workshop starts on March
31. At the end of the weekend,
participants will be given the
option of making their videos
available for the public to view.
