Hadn't been for a little while as the theatres had been fairly run down and not as clean as one would wish for. Went today to see a new release local movie and was pleasantly surprised ....... all new seating in Theatre 1. Renovations are underway and mens loos downstairs, but it is a construction site and signage was good for those things. Staff on today were very pleasant & helpful. Lets hope it stays like this.

Well, the heading says it all. Avoid Row H, Cinema 4 however, when we shifted a ruptured spring in the seat almost perforated my fundamental oriffice (wrecked em , but didn't kill em). Close the Cinema 1 by 1 and conduct a deep clean. Worth informing the Health Dept? I ponder the possibility.

This cinema has to be the worse, most run down complex in NZ. Being part of the Event chain does not mean that it has some level of standard. It is manned by kids who lack hospitality and customer service training, the place is rund down, uncomfortable seats, lack of seating in the foyer, crap air con, poor sound system yet you pay the same $ as a top Event cinema. It should at least be priced accordingly to compensate for a lesser experience. When I last went, families were split up because their booking system was overwhelmed. Kids sat apart from their parents yet they went there for a family experience. It is crap. The owners should be embarrassed. If you are in the North, best to go south or to Keri Keri or Dargaville boutique cinema or save some pingers and watch Netflix at home

I understand that cinemas these days are struggling to make ends meet and can't refresh their décor every few years. I do think it's important though that they maintain a basic level of cleanliness. Sadly this complex doesn't achieve this. On our most recent visit this weekend the first thing we noticed as we walked into the cinema was the smell of old sweat. The carpets and seats seem to be impregnated with it. The curtains and light fixtures were thick with dust. My seat had a broken spring and a piece of popcorn wedged into it. If you can't afford to replace the seating at least get it steam cleaned. The people of Whangarei deserve better when they shell out $16 for a seat.
