good exemple of ART DECO theatre, lot of colored glass integrated in lot of nicely designed furnishures and an atmosphere of old time inside. You better have a guide to visit and understand every bit of the place.

Visited as part of the excellent Art Deco Trust Tour.
What makes it worth while is to have some understanding of the history of the period.Took many pictures,

Helpful staff opened up and showed us the auditorium as we are interested in all things Deco, no performances on during our stay, unfortunately. Has a large stage and can acommodate big productions. The original entrance foyer has been refurbished using carpet made from a found fragment of the original, the lights are original. The new foyer and booking hall has been constructed to blend in with the Art Deco Style, unlike the one at Hastings Opera house.
A definite must see if you are in Napier.

Buildings like this are seldom to be found, especially in such idyllic towns and cities. The theatre is one of Napier's icons. Check the web, or call for 'what's on', as unfortunately, the theatre does have a limited number of events each year, and surprisingly few visitors, I have never been to a 'full house' show or concert. This is in no way a criticism, it just seems, as one often finds travelling through this amazing country, there just are not enough people around.....!!!!
