Geoff’s Review
Catering for an affluent local population (fruit-growing, tourism, retirees), the Cathay Cinema is jointly managed with the Te Ahu Cinema in Kaitaia. A newish establishment but one which reflects a long history (the ‘Cathay’ evokes the use of the site as a community hall in the 1930s), it is the only local cinema for an audience catchment of 15,000, providing a good mix of films across three screens for families and art house aficianados. Also hosts the local leg of the New Zealand International Film Festival.
A good place to catch a film whilst on holiday, in a cinema with a nice ambience.
