Love this place and the staff were very intelligent and great to chat with The other bars in the area are beer willing houses with clients throwing down beers but this place had a good film fan-friendly Vibe and nice choice of top shelf spirits

Small cinema with its own charms. You can wait at the bar with comfy sofas and warm fireplace while waiting for your movie to start. The seats are huge.

Cinema about Fjordland takes approximately 30 mins which is too long and boring for scenery type movie. Movie itself is really good and stunning. However, 10-15 mins would be perfect.

We visited the cinema while in town for the Routebourn classic. It's a lovely little setting and the beautiful movie about Fiordland was well worth the price.

Great wee cinema for an afternoon treat. Large comfortable seats with heaps of leg room. Only seats about 60 people as book early if you can. It also plays up to date current movies.

Don't miss this 30 minute show with spectacular views of the Fiordlands. Makes for a great happy hour as you can take a drink in with you.

The feature film needs booking and is shown only once. The fjord film was a good random impression - but that is all it is guys. Would be better with some commentary or even subtitles. We have bought a copy to take home though.
