Good suburban cinema with one large and one smaller screening rooms. Well stocked coffee, ice cream and snack bar. Good choice of movies by management. Fewer "blockbuster" and children's films. Car parking can be a problem.

Unlike the corporate chains this cinema brings everything you could want from a service and comfort perspective. Located in Epsom the Lido along with Capitol on Dominion Rd are by far the 2 best theaters in Auckland.

Have been to the lido in Hamilton and did not enjoy. Myself and my husband had high hopes for lifo Auckland. Obviously it just has poor management. Will not go again.

This is a really small boutique Cinema which shows interesting movies,(not the commercial run of the mill sort) as well as having a great atmosphere. There is a really nice lounge to sit in before and after the movie with a bar attached. The smallness...More
