Nice Old School Cinema
Jan 2019 • Family
We watch a good family film here.

We noticed a few good systems in play, which make it easy for customers.

The tickets did seem a but more expensive than normal, but I guess it's a long way to their nearest competition.

It was a warm day, so it was nice to cool down. However, it was too cold with the aircon.

So, a few tips that may help.

Not great

The cinema is very dated. That wouldn’t be a problem if it was clean. It’s not clean. The tickets and food are both overpriced and it won’t accept credit card?!? Cash or NZ eftpos only. No parking available. The movie I saw was tremendous though!

Great little theatre

There were a few spots on the screen though which you could see when it was white. Apart from that, it was a great experience. Recommend.

What a neat little cinema nestled in the middle of the beautiful Taupo.
Real old school which was a blast.
Rolled ice-creams and dairy style bags of lollies are some of the snack range.
Friendly staff, smaller theatres with the older style flip up seats.
A great night out.

Pleasant experience
Jul 2018 • Couples
We went on a Sunday afternoon. There were only about 10 people in the theatre. The staff were super friendly and helpful. They were very attentive and kept us informed of when the cinema would be ready. Movie started on time. Theatre was not as clean as it could be and toilets could do with updating. Overall a lovely experience

Movie was good!
Jun 2018 • Family
The cinema was slightly dated although staff were friendly. The place didn't take credit card which caused some problems. The movie was good as they have a selection of lollies, ice cream, popcorn and other food. They also have a few arcade games downstairs. Can be a bit hard to find and doesn't have a carpark.

Movie
Apr 2018 • Friends
Terrible experience the movie started over 30 minutes late which then made us late for dinner reservations.
Heard an older man being very rude to a younger member of staff as well.
This place needs a major makeover it’s grubby and tatty.
Needs to be separate queues for tickets and drinks/food too.

Fantastic Staff
Mar 2018 • Couples
On a whim, my husband and I decided to go catch a movie. We thought we'd be the only ones in the theatre because the city had gone quiet. There were actually quite a few people getting tickets. We watched Tomb Raider and there were 4 of us in the theatre. Hahaha! What was memorable for us were the staff in the cinema, particularly the man selling tickets and snacks. He was very professional, polite and helpful. Really made our night! Keep up the great work.
