The building has its own history. there`s a wall full of old movie posters which is itself an attraction especially if you like independent movies. I watched the movie Colosal there. I like theaters that remain independent and it was worth the experience.

Cool cinema very different than any of those I have been to before. However it is quiet pricey and the food and drinks would be out of the question for most families

We went to paramount cinemas because there was a film festival on. The lay out of the cinema was beautiful. The screen was smaller than expected and the tickets were a little over priced for a movie theatre.

Great vibe in this Arthouse theatre! Amazing Kapiti ice cream and very good coffee. Diverse selection of movies on offer Will return without a doubt :)

As the cinema has been refitted, each tier contains only one row of seats, with 2 feet of leg room in front of each. Great for tall people. Unfortunately, the women's bathroom is extremely cramped.
