The Embassy Information

The Embassy theatre is New Zealand’s grandest picture palace boasting Wellington’s largest screen and state of the art sound. Built in 1924, it was fully refurbished inside and out just in time for the world premiere of The Lord of the Rings–The Return of the King.

At The Embassy theatre you can enjoy a movie in extra comfort in our Platinum section featuring big leather armchairs located in prime position in the theatre. Living up to its reputation as being more than just a cinema, within its stylish foyers, The Embassy houses Blondini’s Cafe & Bar a popular jazz venue for locals.

The beauty of Wellington, the cinema that got the Lord of the Rings premieres and still has names of the actors on the seats to prove it. One big cinema and two relative new boutique deluxe cinemas downstairs, a bar, candy bar and a cafe - fantastic facilities that cater to any time of day or film. Holds multiple festivals, has some Bollywood going, does both blockbusters and art house. Holds special screenings of old time favourites like Dirty Dancing, Breakfast at Tiffany’s , Rocky Horror Picture Show, Top Gun and many others. A must to visit.
