Overview

The Auditorium at the NBS Theatre is the perfect place for any large event you may have planned. Whether its a full theatrical production, a concert, a school reunion, an awards ceremony, or even a corporate dinner, we've got you covered at the NBS Theatre Auditorium. The Auditorium can seat up to 405, but is normally set up to seat 359. Planning a banquet? Why not have it at the NBS Theatre? You can seat your guests on the stage, and if you need some more room we can remove the first three tiers of the seating to increase the flat floor area to accommodate a band perhaps, or just a dance floor, or both! The Auditorium also has a 3 meter wide cross over to the back of the stage, a Green Room, two Dressing Rooms, backstage toilets and shower, and even a kitchen.

A querky small theatre in Westport. We found ourselves there on a damp afternoon in March. There were only about 5 others in the cinema, but we were made welcome and enjoyed ourselves.

Hi there, I'm glad you enjoyed Hunt for the Wilderpeople. Our seats are designed to recline slightly when you lean back which may explain the "unstable" feeling you got. We look forward to seeing you back here soon.

The big hall was very good for the NZSO concert we attended. Pretty basic but modern. The seats in the small movie theatre were pretty uncomfortable though.
