In a case of great minds think alike, Richard Sheppard of Cinema Paradiso and Michaela Hoefler of Cissy’s Parlour have combined their resources and moved Cissy’s Ice-cream Parlour to the Cinema.
Michaela said, “Richard and I were talking about the business being for sale and we came up with this great idea. What better a match than movies and ice-cream?”
ichard Sheppard, co-owner of the cinema and also Chairperson of Methven Action Committee (MAC) said, “It was really disappointing to see another business having to close down in our town. Part of the MAC reason for being is to provide support for all businesses in our area, helping each other out. In this scenario it has worked really well…. the whole being greater than the sum of its parts!”
Richard is currently remodeling the former ‘Snug’ to accommodate the chillers and seating area and hopes to be fully operational by the weekend. In the mean time, you can still get your favourite Cissy’s Parlour ice-creams and milkshakes from the Cinema Paradiso.
Opening times 12pm till 10pm Wednesday to Monday.
