    Didn’t even watch a film just sat in and got very yummy real fruit icecreams. The staff were nice and it’s a nice place to sit in for a relax.

    We visited twice, the first time to stroll through the building (which is open to the public) to see its wonderfully decorated lounges and corridors, and the second to watch Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. It's an old school cinema, the kind big pictures were made for with seating for hundreds, but modern upgrades in sound and screen. Comfy seats, stairs without railings so be careful, busy at the concession but quick to put people through. Bought tickets there ahead of show time.

    Readings Cinema is a nice cinema place in Wellington with plenty of screens to watch movies and an awesome food court. Certainly worth considering.

    The building has its own history. there`s a wall full of old movie posters which is itself an attraction especially if you like independent movies. I watched the movie Colosal there. I like theaters that remain independent and it was worth the experience.

    I am a regular visitor at the Penthouse.
    I love the combination of a decent cafe and good film selection. Generally friendly and efficient staff and good facilities. For a catch up location with friends, I recommend 😊
