This is how all cinemas should be. It has a lovely Art Deco style with an amazing restaurant and cocktail bar and a little old fashioned sweet stand.

The cinema itself has huge leather seats with little tables on the arms that are the perfect size for a cocktail or a glass of wine. It shows a mixture of new releases and old and independent movies.

It is the best cinema I have been to, so much better than anything any of the big chains have to offer.

If only we had a cinema like this back home in the UK. There’s style and comfort in those deep Italian leather seats with a well designed spot to put your drink while watching the movie. And after the movie, if you catch the early show, there’s still time for food and a drink in their bar and restaurant. We enjoyed the excellent bar snacks – loved the arancini and the halloumi sliders, and the fries are superb – and thought the wine list was really well chosen. As for the movies themselves, I particularly like the way they have old classics once a month and wish we had been around for more of them. We paid three visits during our time in Wellington – a marvellous place to enjoy a film.

on show. Lord of the Rings themed cinema & restaurant. Food is carefully thought out & tasty especially if sharing with friends as the menu is focussed on small plates. Not especially inexpensive but flavours & textures carefully thought out. Easy just to turn up for a comfortable afternoon lounging with a good glass of wine. Not necessary to see a movie at all...

We loved the whole experience of a night out at the Roxy. Yummy food in a unique environment, then a comfy seat to watch a movie.
Worth going the distance to visit!

we make a point when in wellington to go and see a movie here. The theatre is the best boutique movie theatre i have ever been to. I love the resturaunt (however meals are a bit pricey but no more than other wellington locations). I love the history of this theatre and its association with Peter Jackson (lord of the rings and hobbit fame).
