Want to catch the latest flick at the movies in Wanaka? Well, you’ll be relaxing in style at either of the movie theatres on offer in our little town!

Cinema Paradiso is described in the NZ Lonely Planet guidebook as “deservedly one of Wanaka’s biggest attractions and just maybe a NZ National Treasure!” This small classic movie theatre is a real find and provides a truly memorable movie experience. Comfy old sofas, a Morris Minor, a cafe and bar serving delicious meals, plus homemade ice-cream and world-famous hot cookies fresh every intermission!


Rubys Cinema & Bar transports you back to a time when going to the pictures was an event. With two Gold Class cinemas, Rubys offer’s the latest film releases, with some of the latest 3D technology and Art-House titles that include Independent productions and foreign movies.
