Its a great theater, one of the best I have been to in NZ. Great seats, good sized theaters, great staff. If you dont want to go to a movie the spacious lounge area is great for just hanging out and having drink.

I now go to the Lido before any other cinema in Hamilton. The atmosphere is relaxed, comfortable elegance, due in part to the beautiful decor, and in part to friendly, welcoming staff. I never feel rushed, pushed or surrounded by noisy neighbours, even when the cinema is a sell-out. Great choice of films - caters for all tastes - and... More

Indie films, big ones, opera - they have it all and it's beautiful inside, too. Can also recommend their ice-cream.

We have been going regularly to the Lido over this Christmas, New Year period and enjoying the selection of movies on offer and enjoyed the convenience and comfort that the Lido provides. You have a pre-movie drink or take your drink and enjoy during the movie. You can select some nice eats or enjoy a rich fruity flavoured Rush Munro... More

Absolutely beautiful cinema, and would highly recommend to anyone who enjoys film festival films, documentaries or others that aren't so mainstream. The staff are lovely, and if you're after a sweet treat, go for the Melting Moments that are available in the counter. A great place for a treat for yourself, or with friends.

I love this funky loittle cinema. It's very adult oriented and has a touch of class about it. The staff are very friendly and although the range of food is not like you get at your all-the-same multiplex it's all excellent. Coffe in 'proper' cups, wine in a glass etc. The three cinema's a small but perfectly formed with large... More

When you enter the Lido cinema foyer there is a sense of going back in time with the decor. There's no rush or hustle or buste. It's a pleasure to order a drink and maybe a delicious slice to accompany it. Then you can relax in a lovely chair in a setting that reminds you of an old study. Take... More
