Good temperature and comfy seating with a fair sized screen. This isn’t the best cinema I’ve ever been to but there’s definitely nothing wrong with it.

There were a lot of theaters, lines get busy about 15 minutes before a movie showing so best to get in before then. The prices are very high for a NZ cinema so keep that in mind when going there.

The seats in the cinema were so very hard and low, extremely uncomfortable! And the sound quality was extremely poor - way too loud!

Well it's the only cinema in Palmerston North. Expensive in my opinion, tickets are around $20. When I was there, there is a loyalty scheme where you get discounts. That is probably the way to go. Clean. Nothing to complain about in terms of quality.

The staff are always friendly. The cinema itself is looking a bit tired in terms of decor and bathroom facilities, perhaps it will be upgraded as the ground floor is. But its good to have the variety of movies given it has 8 theatres.

George and I went to watch Andre Rieu's 2016 concert in his hometown of Maastricht. Excellent afternoon and of course great music. We are going up to Auckland in November to hear him "live" and that will be a real thrill. I booked our seats...More

Moved from London, so was expecting the cinema to be busy for the opening days of a block buster. We got there early, seats don't get allocated. The cinema was a third full, result, plenty of space. Well priced, screen is a little on the...More

The only movie theatre complete in Palmerston North so you don't have much choice. The venue is kept quite tidy considering it is a movie theatre. It can be quite expensive by the time you get snacks, the choice of snack is very average, the...More
