"Deservedly one of Wanaka's biggest attractions & just maybe a NZ National Treasure!" NZ Lonely Planet
"Halfway through, the film stopped & we had a short interval. Everyone went outside to the adjoining cafe & got freshly baked cookies (still warm), homemade ice cream or a beer & then settled back into their chairs. This is how all cinemas should be. It was more like being round someone's house."
The Cinema and cafe are open daily from 10am.
