Capri Cinema

Merkel and Myrtle decided to return to Eggless Dessert Café recently however were early for its 8pm opening time. They crossed the road to the Capri Cinema and Merkel ordered a hot chocolate from the Café there. The Capri is a wonderful big old cinema with its theatre organ as a central attraction. The organ is played prior to some movie sessions and audience is treated to a viewing of the brightly illuminated moving parts of this huge musical instrument. The auditorium of the Capri is plush, comfortable and reminiscent of a disappearing sense of grandeur.

The hot chocolate was $3.50 and unfortunately came from a beverage machine. It came in a paper cup and was too sweet with no froth. Despite the sponsorship from Haigh's Chocolates the Capri is not somewhere to seek a good hot chocolate.
