“Amazing cinema”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2014

beautiful refurbished 1930s original cinema. Two big screens. Feels like going to the movies in the 1930s- no popcorn but yummy sweets and ice cream! I choose Roxy preferentially over most other theatres in Wellington. The restaurant and bar there is excellent too.

“Oh man! What an experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2014

Loved it! Loved it! Loved it!
The ambiance of the place was so impressive and all the features were spectacular, the roof the sculptures, the paintings, everything!
Loved the video clip on cinema history. Thanks Peter Jackson, you are the man :)

“Our favourite cinema”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2014

Where to start? The building has been completely renovated in the last few years and inside it has a wonderful art deco feel. The seats are really comfy with plenty of leg-room. The staff are always friendly and the cinema shows a good mix of Hollywood blockbusters and smaller budget films. And if you want a meal either before or after the film, give Coco (the in-house restaurant) a try ... gorgeous food!!

“The love child of movie makers and a community”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2014

A fantastic movie theater, cafe, and restaurant with stunning murals, paintings, sculptures and art from the industry over the past few decades. Worth visiting just for a coffee.

The Roxy shows all the mainstream movies as well as doing director's movie series, classic movies and others.

This really is what all movie theaters should aspire too.
