Seats could be larger

Good sound but small seats in regular theaters although arms do go up between sets - good for snuggling. Brought our own ice-cream in which wasn't a problem.

This is the second time I watched a movie in this cinema. The first time I did it solo, but this time I was with friends. I truly enjoyed watching movies here because the seats are comfy and the screen and sound system are great. The concession area also offers a good variety of food and drinks, though they are...

Lots of current movies are available, no outside food or drinks are allowed, a modern cinema with all the bells and whistles close to the hotels and restaurants

The complex that the theatres are in is a bit jumbled but ok once you get your bearings. The theatres themselves are clean and tidy and have comfortable seats. The snacks and drinks are expensive like most cinemas. The ticket prices at about $18 a head are expensive.

The food was well made and presented, The seating was very nice and the staff member we were with was helpful in locating the reclining controls. Overall would have this again.

Came in with our 2 boys to watch a movie. Seats are very comfy, awesome screen quality and sound. Wasn't too packed either considering it was a public holiday. Always come here when Im in Auckland, am also big fan of Imax 3D.

The staff were extremely professional and friendly. A great movie experience where you can order food to be delivered to your seat either at the start of the movie or in the middle. Comfortable reclining seats. Worth the spend.

A very nice cinema, with comfortable seating and the screen is huge! I went to a regular screening so could only imagine what Gold Class must be like. When I first walked in I worried as the rows didn't look like they were tiered too much so I was hoping not to get a tall person in front of me.... More

The layout of the building was cool yet confusing. However the arcade and Daiso were very fun and where majority of one of my days' was spent.
