Having bought Grab One deal for Dinner and a Movie we thought we would use this on Valentines night. Big mistake, HUGE! We decided to see the 6pm showing of Darkest Hour and ordered our meal prior to going into the movie - our first...More

Last year when I visited, I ate before the movie and the food was delayed for so long that I missed part of the film. So with this visit I decided to allow an hour to eat. My partner and I both ordered simple snacks...More

Used to eat here a bit. Great movies and cinema. Food and service just kill the restaurant. Run out of this, got only one of this. Hopeless. Could be so good with a little organisation. Good for movies only. Eat and drink elsewhere. Brooklyn has...More

Beautiful theater to see. We have seen film festival showings as well as new releases. Nice cafe if you want food or snacks. They do not allow hot food into the theater, a bit different from others in town.

So Burger and fries takes over a half hour to deliver. And the place is half empty. Perhaps they need to be left alone to work on their game. Not sure if they have anyone in-charge to do that though.

The Penthouse Cinema and Café is a suburban success story catering for the bohemian bourgeois, and slightly alternative trendies. The café does meals before movies and has a well-deserved reputation for sound and sometimes interesting food. The menu has lamb shanks, steak, fish, chicken, vegetarian...More

While the Penthouse has a great selection of movies it isnt the nicest environment when compared to the excellent range of art house cinemas on offer in Wellington. There is a musty off putting smell when you walk in which is stronger in the cafe...More
