Not only a theatre but an experience not to be missed. The friendly staff, on site cafe and comfortable, quirky seating made for a memorable occasion. The film "Mountain" was great also.

I have never before been to a cinema that is cosier than my living room :) The cookies on the break are delicious! Only minus variable service, sometimes super friendly sometimes not so...

I saw Desolation of Smaug and Captain Phillips there and I can say it's just the best cinema ever ! When you can just lay down on a sofa and just enjoy your movie with a cookie or a coffee. Awesome. :)

For just NZ$15, this is a worth-it experience. Seats are a combination of cinema seats, actual sofas and even a car! Sound and video quality is good.
