Great film, most odd coffee service
May 2019 • Friends
Great city centre cinema with a fantastic DVD rental choice to be envied the world over!

Odd or eclectic or eccentric is my description of the service when we ordered 4 coffees just before the film start. The film started and each coffee was delivered at 5 minute intervals to us in our seats. Nice enough coffee, but a little bit distracting. But it fits the place well, small, eclectic and slightly eccentric.

Great place!

They have a great selection for movies on rental and also the ones they show in their own cinema. Fantastic little place.

Watched a movie
Feb 2018
Super cinema - nice that this Art Deco building survived the quake. We were in the Egyptian Theatre - only about 35 seats - very good quality seats and screen.
Had a coffee from the little kiosk and pursued the enormous library of dvds (25000) that are available. Grand night

Cozy, Comfy Theatre!
Nov 2017 • Friends
Went to see Murder on the Orient Express and was not disappointed. The theater is very clean and neat and also comfortable and cozy. We had a disabled person in a scooter and t was so easy to just drive right into the theatre and get a seat for her. Excellent place to see a movie. We highly recommend it!

Back in time

A great experience with excellent service. Both a video store and two boutique movie theatres. We patronised the Egyptian themed theatre today and were impressed. $15 for an adult ticket. Toilets look to be in process of upgrade which looks timely. A different class of movie and clientele meant a focused and enjoyable experience. Comfortable seats.

Walk Like An Egyptian.........
Mar 2016 • Friends
The classic cinema décor in this boutique theatre is fabulous! It's all Egypt and turquoise and Pharoah's gold. There is a great offering of classic, retro and non mainstream new releases in this dear little theatre adjoining the iconic Alice In Videoland and a step away from the fabulous and equally quirky C1 café.

The only downside and not one that Alice's can help, is that it's right in the middle of the horrendously complicated High St rebuild. So it's rather a poignant reminder of the ghastly time of the earthquakes, which always rather tarnishes my gleeful anticipation of a movie. Heigh Ho! What can you do?

So Handy
Aug 2016 • Couples
As city dwellers, we often go to this theatre. The location is perfect, within walking distance. The films on offer are great. Lovely to pop next door for a coffee as well. Fantastic to still have a movie theatre so close in the city area, for locals and tourists.

Terrific boutique cinema!
Jul 2016 • Solo
My favourite boutique cinema and DVD store of all time! It has movies not always shown at other bigger theatres and has a great collection of DVD's old and new and hard to find classics. And with C1 Espresso next door - great coffee and curley fries, its a good night out!
