Not enough staff on for a screening and slow service. Bad signage and poorly informative. Not a consistent reading cinemas experience.

Be sure to come early! Its a Friday night and only one person is at the counter. A very dated venue.

visited twice in December...once for a 3d version of Star Wars and the second time for the Hunger Games Pt2.....service was great and the theatre was busy. The 3d glasses supplied were second rate and restricted ones view of the screen. The sound was ordinary. Seats were comfortable. Recommend the boysenberry ice-cream!!! Noise from adjoining theatres was a distraction during... More

The staff were very helpful and friendly. The theatre clean and in good condition. They didn't take my Dunedin Readings club card, but they did say they would be able to in the future when they update their system.

It's like a baby version of Reading in Courtney Place Wellington. Staff was friendly and I'm happy there's a "familiar" place to go to for movies near our Hotel.

Been going to movies regularly for years and collecting points so was disappointed when wasn't allowed to swap unwanted popcorn voucher for a soft drink. Service always quite slow.

Out dated technology. Poor sound and marginal vision. Service is appalling...always a long and painful queue.

small, petite and bijou but great viewing. You can collect points to get money off movies and its worth doing, because it doesnt take long.

This was good for going to the movies. The team were helpful and always pushing for the upgrades. If they were less focused on that and just focused on getting the queues through it would be a great place.
