Tours, Roxy Cinema
The Roxy Cinema is an iconic Wellington must see tourist site. Located just 10 minutes from the City Centre and only 5 minutes from Wellington Airport and Weta Cave, it’s well worth a visit. The Roxy is known for its Art Deco glamour, film industry connections, state of the art theatres, and Weta Workshop designed interior, all presented with the best local food and drink and genuine Kiwi hospitality.
The Roxy is located in the centre of Middle Earth, in the suburb of Miramar (‘Wellywood’), and is adjacent to the multi award winning Weta Film studios. Owned by film and hospitality personalities, The Roxy is a boutique cinema recreating the glamour and celebrating the golden age of film. Watch a movie as it should be experienced; with an amazing themed cocktail, tasty coffee or delicious treats. You can even pop in for lunch on the way to the Weta Caves.
Experience the best of the Wellington coffee scene with a barista made La’ffare coffee and a homemade baked treat. Great coffee cannot be rushed so whilst waiting for your perfect cup to be prepared, take a look at the art deco interior and displays. Pose with Gandalf outside on the plaza, photograph our on display Academy Award or hunt for Gollum hiding inside.
The Roxy is home to two theatres, an award winning cocktail bars, a stunning event space and our highly acclaimed restaurant, CoCo at the Roxy. Dine where movie stars have dined and who knows who you might see!
