10 Kent Terrace, Mount Victoria, Wellington
The Embassy Theatre is New Zealand’s grandest picture palace. Built in 1926, the theatre was fully refurbished in 2003 for the world premiere of ‘The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King’. Since then, the 820-seat theatre has hosted many special events. This includes an array of Australasian premieres and many fine film festivals.
You’ll feel spoilt with a giant CinemaScope screen, state-of-the-art sound system, and luxury seating. The chic bar downstairs is home to two further boutique cinemas. Many original Art Deco features remain including a grand marble staircase and intricate plastered ceilings.
