A cinema can be much more than a place to see movies, as this story of the old Mansfield Cinema, and its modern counterpart - the totally digital Mansfield Armchair cinema - explores.

When the old Mansfield Cinema closed down, the town lost it's cultural centre. Years on, it took the brain wave of a local accountant, and a lot of community support to resurrect a cinema in Mansfield. Building from strength to strength, Armchair Cinemas is unique in that it is the first totally digital cinema in Victoria, and it is almost exclusively run by teenagers from the local high school.
