After moving to AKL: I immediately searched for film-club with good taste and offer of advanced movies. We found Academy Cinemas: trying to come here at least twice a week (not only on Wednesday!). I like the movies' selection, local ice-cream, as well as the venue (especially that cute little screening room - for 16 people only?).

Arthouse cinema hidden away under Auckland Library probably has the best chocolate tops in Auckland.
Programming is always interesting and intriguing and often controversial. Undeniably a hidden gem.

I saw 3 films at Academy Cinema over 3 days. I saw 'Marshland' an excellent retro police murder mystery set in the south of Spain in the late 1970s just after the end of the Franco fascist torture regime. Highly recommended. I also saw 'Legend' about the Kray brothers, 1960s London gangsters. Tom Ford was very very good and it looked good (production values), but overall only so-so. I saw both of these in 16 seat mini-cinema 1. For me the second or third row was the best seat selection.

Finally, I am now about to see 'Macbeth' in the larger Cinema 2.

Overall, I recommend this small cinema for film buffs and as an alternative to the megaplex a few blocks away.

Shows a good variety of Documentaries. Small cozy cinemas, you can get snacks and a glass of wine to have whilst watching movie. Great little set up worth a visit.
