The Film Archive - Soup and Seat series

Last week we checked out the National Archives so this week we thought we'd check out the Film Archive.

The Film Archive is currently running a series of films and documentaries on Friday lunch times called Soup and a Seat. Why? Because you get a cup of real soup to eat, with a slice of bread, while you watch your film. The price isn't bad either, only $8 for food and entertainment.

Surprisingly the theatre is like any other theatre; huge screen, dark room, and comfy seats. The soup was good but not great and the bread was small so don't expect this to fill you up - you'll probably need to get lunch after. The films on offer are of a variety, something to interest everyone and most relatively recent. If you find something you want to watch we think it is worth it.

There are only two Fridays left in the Soup and a Seat series so get down to the Film Archive soon.

Full details about the Soup and Seat series here.

Visit the Film Archive on the web and on Facebook.

Location: The Film Archive, 84 Taranaki Street, Wellington

Price: $8, $6 (students)

Both Archives are open to the public free of charge. You can request to see their holdings for research or interest.
