“What a surprise”
Review of Ruby's Cinema

Ruby's Cinema
Ranked #4 of 7 Fun & Games in Wanaka
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed March 21, 2014

Inside a rather nondescript building is Ruby's - velvet, lighting, gorgeous bar, warm and helpful staff. Glad we got there early. The cinema itself was intimate - seated maybe 60 people - and spacious. Generous rows and big, comfy recliner seats. Service of drinks and food in the cinema was unobtrusive. Menu looked worth trying. Not the standard fare. Neither was the movie - current release but arthouse rather than blockbuster style.

From the moment you step inside - you feel like stepping back in time when hospitality was at its best and movie going was a novelty only the decadent would appreciate. Great food, comfy reclining chairs and not too crowded. This is not your average cinema, this is waaay beyond that. Thanks heaps, will pop in next time in Wanaka.

Most comfortable seating with fully reclining seats in the front. Well worth the extra money they cost. Nice that you can bring your drinks inside the theatre.

Ruby's has style and is classy! What a neat place to see a movie. Every chair is very comfortable, you can order drinks, food or jars of candy, ice cream delivered to you in your seat! The staff are wonderful, accommodating making it a personal movie experience for all. Small theaters as well playing all the current films.
