Art-House Cinema

Movies have invaded our homes in this digital age but there is a thriving set of art-house or independent cinemas around the country offering the magic of film to an older audience than the main chain movie theaters. Often the art-house cinemas act as meeting places offering coffee and food and arm chair type seating in the auditorium.In some cases they are housed in imaginatively restored old buildings and other are new builds. Frequently the cinemas are part of the NZ International Film Festival circuit.
