Kiwi's incredible fifties collection on show at Auckland's Movies in Parks

It's time to take a step back in time to one Kiwi's incredible fifties collection.

A fully-functioning American diner is Mat Bedoni's passion project.

"This is one of those things that snowballed," he told Newshub. 

Modelled on the real thing, it comes complete with a checkered floor, jukebox and even snacks. 

Now, he's teaming up with Auckland Council to share his passion with a new generation. 

"The doors were in a very old diner in Baltimore, these particular barstools were from one in Los Angeles," he said. 

But it doesn't stop there. 

Mat is also the owner of several rare cars which he will put on display at Auckland Council's Movies in Parks. 

His 1958 Corvette C1 Roadster, which you might have seen in the likes of Grease, will be part of the fun as plays on Saturday February 1 as the classic hits Barry Curtis Park in Flat Bush. 

The movie screens ten minutes after the sun goes down, but it all kicks off at 6.30pm. 

His generosity providing a new way to enjoy some old classics.

Across town on Friday 31 January, the screening of Pokemon Detective Pikachu will be preceded by free face painting, craft zone and photo booth for the kids at Monte Cecilia Park in Hillsborough.
