Internal alterations within the Art Deco, Historic Places Trust listed Greymouth Regent Theatre, have created two intimate cinemas of 20 and 50 seats. These new cinemas allow for more and regular scheduled screening times for movies. Previously screening times had to be worked in with the use of the main auditorium for live shows and theatre.
The project involved working withing the confines of an existing building envelope and seismic strenghtening of building around the new cinemas.
The new cinemas continue the tradition of showing films at the Regent Theatre, previously shown in the main auditorium.
