Recently The Capitol cinema on Dominion Road closed down. Not long after that news broke, it was announced Rialto Distribution was going to buy the cinema, so it would stay open. Daniel Pickstone is a film nerd and also works for Monterey Cinema group as a programmer. The Monterey Cinema group is owned by Kelly Rogers and David Ross, the pair who started Rialto Cinemas. Since then, they have sold Rialto but retain five cinemas throughout New Zealand and remain the owners of Rialto Distribution. Lillian Hanly spoke with Daniel  about the importance of cinema and started by asking why The Capitol closed down.
