New Zealand's Hawera Cinema bans pyjamas and onesies

 

 

A cinema in New Zealand has banned people from wearing pyjamas, onesies and dirty boots to screenings, in a move designed to raise dress standards.

Hawera Cinemas said in recent months it had seen an increasing number of patrons attending in nightwear.

It announced the ban in a Facebook post, adding the clothes did not encourage the right "vibe".

The dress code at the cinema, located on the country's North Island, has sparked heated debate on social media.

 

Fashion police?

 

Kirsty Bourke, manager at Hawera Cinemas said over the last two months the cinema has seen "an increase in customers wearing pyjamas and customers wearing dirty gumboots and work boots, so like many restaurants and clubs we decided to adopt a dress code".

"The support we have received is fantastic. We have had customers all day congratulating us," she told the BBC.

Judging by the Facebook debate, many people support the dress code - and wouldn't have thought of violating it in the first place.

 

'We will refuse entry'

 

While there's been lively debate on Facebook, the cinema itself hasn't received any complaints since the policy was announced at the weekend.

But Ms Bourke warns "if customers turn up in their pyjamas, we will refuse entry".

She's confident the change won't be bad for business.

"We believe we will lose more customers by not adopting a dress code," she said.

"Restaurants and clubs have always had dress codes so why not cinemas?"

There was a meeting of the respective heads of the countries, in Five Eyes, recently, the only one who did not attend? Trumperbelle.

 

Maybe the others didn't invite him. Maybe they'd seen the Queen do the happy dance, when she found out Trump wasn't going to come to Buckingham Palace and they wanted some of that...

So Coss, you think that circumventing laws by using other countries to spy is OK?

"So Coss, you think that circumventing laws by using other countries to spy is OK?"

 

That sounds like CIA to me and MI6 and the rest. But I'd rather be part of a Western alliance than the Sino, or Russian alternative...

 

 

​SERCO is just bunch of vile businessmen making the most of their opportunities. This is how rich people keep getting richer, once they've got past a certain level, they all massage each other and let each other have opportunities to keep getting richer, usually to the detriment of the less well off, like you and me.

 

 

Speaking of vile businessmen, what's Jared Kushner been up to lately?
