The Civic

One of the few remaining atmospheric theatres in the world

The Civic, one of the few remaining atmospheric theatres in the world, was built in 1929 and specifically designed as a 'movie palace' for talking pictures ('talkies'), which had just been introduced to New Zealand.

The first purpose-built cinema of this type in the country, The Civic has become a much-loved Auckland landmark and entertainment venue, with everything from world-class musicals, to well-known pop stars and the NZ International Film Festival all using this magnificent venue.
