For more than 50 years Peter Goodbehere has championed film, and in January he received the Queen’s Service Medal for service to film.
He joined the Wellington Film Society in the 1950s while working for the New Zealand Broadcasting Service. After being transferred to Napier, he set up the Napier Film Society and served as president for 41 years until it disbanded. Peter’s dedication to film led to the creation of Century Cinema.
And he still enjoys a good film, but his favourite is Orson Welles’ 1941 film Citizen Kane: “It’s still thrilling to watch.”
