SAILING Kent Passage Good news for larger yachts, the Kent Passage overhead power wires have been removed and buried under the ocean. It has always been a nervous time crossing under the wires with your heart in your mouth -- will we clear or not? No longer a problem. The water depth of course remains the same with approximately 2.6 metres at spring low tides on the southern side of the passage. 23 NORTHERN NEWS, NOVEMBER 23, 2011 SPORT CENSOR'S CLASSIFICATIONS UNRESTRICTED FILMS: RESTRICTED FILMS: G PG Approved for General Exhibition Parental Guidance recommended for younger viewers M Suitable for mature audiences 16 years & over RP (AGE) Restricted to persons over the specified age unless accompanied by parent/guardian e.g. RP13, RP16 R (AGE) Restricted to person over specified age e.g. R13, R15, R16, R18 CINEMAS MAY REQUEST PROOF OF AGE ID FOR RESTRICTED FILMS TE AHU CINEMA Corner Church & South Roads, KAITAIA Ph (09) 408 0519 Always ring cinema for day to day ses sion times THEATRE: 09 401 2398 23 RAIHARA ST, KAIKOHE Visit www.nzcinema.co.nz or www.flicks.co.nz for movie details PARANORMAL ACTIVITY III (M) Fri 25th 1.15pm, 6pm.
