Some nice examples of Art Deco buildings in Hokitika, particularly the theatre. Nowhere near as ubiquitous as in Napier on North Island but worth stopping for a look see. Tbh we just drove through Hokitika and took a few photos (also the Clock Tower) as we had to press on to Franz Josef.

Quick pit-stop planned but after getting brewed coffees at Regent Theatre decided to do a quick lap of town. What a pleasant surprise! Empty beach with grey volcanic sand. Lovely old church a mere block away, and a real vibe of a gold mining town. Worth a visit.

We came here with a 10 & 13yr old to watch a movie. The guy at the counter had great banter related to the purchase of a bucket of popcorn. A story that I’m sure he’s told hundred of times, but it didn’t matter. We went in early, and saw the ending credits of the earlier film as there weren’t any patrons remaining. The cinema is huge! Lovely restoration and reminded me of movies as a kid, so much space I couldn’t even reach the row of seats in front to rest my legs on if I wanted to!
We’ll be back for more films on a rainy day.

We popped in to see what was playing and it didn’t suit my 6yo... so they said they would message us if no one turned up for cats, and they would play something else!! They did message, and someone did come for cats but I really appreciated the follow up and attempt to modify the schedule. Now, that’s service.

We didn't get to watch a movie but passing through Hokitika Winter 2018 decided on pies for lunch... OMG , these were the freshest and best tasting pies we have ever had and we've tied many.

The tiny town has a movie theatre right out of the “movies”. Locals volunteer with maintenance. There is a showing room with accomodations for a stage performance. A tiny viewing room reminiscent of a large living room.
During the day there is a small cafe on the lobby. We had a free night and went to see a New Zealand produced movie..what a treat,
Ice cream bars were tasty!

I stopped at Hokitika for a driver reviver and found this fab little cafe inside the theatre foyer. Great coffee, lots of excellent-looking goodies but I was planning lunch at Greymouth. I look forward to coming back here for brunch on a future visit.

My partner and I went there for a pie - and they are really good ! The pastry is clearly homemade and the filling were tasty and saucy - perfect pie fillings. We had the creamy chicken and the steak, cheese and bacon. I wish I could have tried the lamb one but it was sold out...

As for the movie, we watched Captain Marvel in the Stanley room - coziest cinema room I have ever seem. No IMAX - but very cute. Worth the experience.

This theatre has been lovingly restored by 1000's hiurs of volunteer labour to bring it back to the bygone days of Cinema. The building is also used for convention weddings school productions and movies. This icon is truly a beautiful old building well loved and nurtured. A must see and if possible take a tour of the behind the scenes for all its history

Travelling from Fox Glacier en route for Reefton we stumbled across the small town of Hokitika where as it was lunchtime we parked up. So please we did do as I decided I fancied a pie and my word I was not disappointed with the one bought at Stapleton’s Milk Bar. Jam packed with steak and was delicious.
