Only went for the cafe but unfortunately the cafe was not worth going to. Slow service and cold food

An armchair or settee as your seat. Drinks allowed in the auditorium. Small so need to book to ensure a seat.

I love this cinema it's a boutique cinema with less seats than the over sized ones.
You can grab a bite to eat plus a drink in the cafe or take it in the movies with you. They serve alcohol and coffee plus the normal movie treats
Parking can be a problem but we seem to always find one

We like going here as it’s small, has good car parking, friendly staff, comfy seats, and nice coffees and ice creams. There is a very limited selection of food, but it is tasty. Today I’d hoped to see the Avengers, and I’d booked online yesterday. It was pretty much booked out, so we had front seats, which I don’t mind, but, and it’s a big but, we had seats right at the end and couldn’t see the screen properly. After 5 minutes of trying to watch the previews, I had a sore neck from twisting to try to see the screen. It wasn’t an option to move, as the cinema was packed, so we had to leave. The staff were really good about it and gave us two complimentary tickets so that we can go back another time, but it was very disappointing. I suggest that those seats are sold with a warning that there is a limited view, or they are sold cheaper than the usual $17.50. It’s quite a to to pay for a movie, but I was happy to pay it for what I thought would be sitting in a nice comfy seat.

A small area which I honestly did not think was particularly well planned, seating wise. We felt too close to others, who also felt the same.

I love the location of this little boutique cinema as you can walk around the inlet and then take in a coffee and a movie. However don't go hungry as there is limited food choice - we went for lunch and there was only a couple of fritters and sausage rolls available as well as limited slices. Not a one off as this has been the case on other visits.
And rather pricey too for what you got.
We were even directed to the cafe down the road to go and eat at if we wanted something different. The cinema has a lovely outlook and relaxing atmosphere with a good number of seating - which i think they could really utilise and capture a buzzing cafe vibe with healthy food options, which at present they are missing out on.

Cold on this occasion. Not really comfortable if the temperature is too hot or cold. Otherwise it is a great venue with nice ice creams & wine selection. Very comfortable seating

Very disappointing service if you book online and then have to cancel. Soon after booking and paying for tickets online last week our grandson became ill. My husband left 2 voicemail messages to cancel the tickets. He clearly requested a call back. Those calls were not returned. A few days later I looked at the refund policy. There was a field that said click here to contact. The contact was an email address however there was no response to my email. I can accept that we may not be entitled to a refund but the very poor customer service is totally unacceptable

This is a 30 min drive from Wellington city and feels very country. The drive is lovely with the inlet always in view. You can book online in advance and choose your seats. Seats are allocated so it pays to book early. There is plenty of free a parking. Arrive early for a wine or coffee and cafe food or take this into the movie with you. A lovely place to watch a movie.

The Pauatahanui inlet road runs right round the bay toward the cinema and village. A stunning boardwalk further along for those who like a bit more activity.
