This place has such a unique and original vibe! We went there on a rainy day and were caught by surprise. The movie halls are small and quaint, with comfy couches and cushions and blankets. There’s an intermission when you can get hot cookies! The mini restaurant in the theatre has a great and healthy selection of snacks and appetizers.
So much fun! We went on a rainy day in Wanaka and I’m so glad we did. A cinema with so much character, real sofas and an intermission so you don’t need to sit through dying for a pee or dreaming of all the snacks you didn’t get.
