Academy Cinemas

Auckland's dedicated art-house cinema

The Academy is Auckland's only dedicated art-house cinema.

Academy Cinemas prides themselves on finding and delivering the highest quality and most entertaining films from both inside and outside the Hollywood studio system.

At the Academy you will find a range of the best local and international films, documentaries, romantic comedies, dramas and thrillers. There will be apecial events from exclusives, indie-films sought directly from film makers worldwide, live experiences and lots of classics and retrospectives. All served to you in the comfort of wide seats, with wine holders so you can enjoy a drink or sweet treat during your movie.

In the foyer ambient tunes play and the staff serve chilled beer and boutique wines, as well as making fresh organic fair-trade coffee. Relax and enjoy flipping through one of a huge range of magazines they provide for their customers’ enjoyment, while awaiting the start of your movie.

Special offers at Academy Cinemas

  • $5 Admission

    Every Wednesday

    All movies* on Wednesday are $5 per film per person. These films will generally differ from our regular releases screening blockbusters you may have missed or great films we didn't have the room to screen. It's a great opportunity to watch multiple films in one day and enjoy great deals on the bar too. 

    The $5 Wednesday schedule is uploaded a week in advance. We highly recommend booking online as sessions regularly sell out. 

    *excluding film festivals that may fall on a Wednesday (such as NZIFF 2020) or exclusive special events. We will state if there is a pricing difference.
