Cosy, friendly, boutique, good choice of movie, interesting conversation, a good place to meet and unwind, licorice ice cream,(!) and much more - a haven of peace to watch something interesting and meet likeminded people too - would go back anytime - try it!

What a find. First off it is not your mainstream movie theater, and that in so many ways is a big plus for the Gecko . This is primarily an "art movie" theater showing film festival and foreign language films. To me a classic sense of Kiwiana. The seating is all recycled lounge furniture that was very comfortable (based on the two sofas I have occupied to date). The manager/usherette/ticket and food salesperson comes into the theater and asks if everyone is comfortable with the temperature and then points to where the blankets are kept should one feel the need. The ice cream is delicious. So if you're down for a night at a cinema to watch a better than average film then the Gecko is highly recommended. The country needs more theaters like this, though I fear it will become more and more difficult for them to source movies from the distributors. Get there!!…
